Many children when they are growing up and are asked what they want to be when they grow up will say they want to be a sports star, or perhaps a doctor or a fireman. One other more outlandish, certainly out of this world occupation that is often cited is that of an astronaut. Amazingly, as technology develops and companies like SpaceX and Virgin Galactic continue to work to make cheaper space flight and space tourism respectively a relative prospect. For many of our children in the years ahead this might actually become a realistic prospect.

For the overly large proportion of the rest of though, such times are out of reach. However, we can still all reach for the stars – or at least orbit – thanks to virtual reality (VR) and the latest release from Polish creative studio The House of Fables. They’ve teamed up with the European Space Agency (ESA) to bring you a new view of the world, one 400km above it in fact, with a tour of the International Space Station (ISS).
