Antarctica in Decline – A Virtual Reality Experience

Antarctica-in-Decline-A-Virtual-Reality-Experience IMDB Page

Mark Terry and fellow York University students created this Virtual Reality project in 2017 in Toronto, Canada.

“In this VR experience, users can interact with penguins, explore topographically accurate landscapes and experience the collapse of the Larsen C ice shelf. Other elements include a replica of the shack made from the remains of the Endurance after it was shipwrecked 100 years ago. In this structure, users will find maps, data, and photographs of the area and a walker-talkie with a mysterious message from one of the first Antarctic explorers, Sir Ernest Shackleton (his actual voice). If the landscape is explored extensively, users will come across a video report of the area presented by the scientists of the British Antarctic Survey.”
