Space is highly unpredictable and space stations have been the early adopters of the new and emerging technologies. VR can be used to simulate various scenarios in space. The scientists and astronauts use VR to also train to remotely stabilize the several devices they send out for space exploration.
Eg. Space exploration has had its set of limitations and has been a privilege only for a few. While companies like SpaceX, Amazons Blue Origin and Virgin group are trying to make spade travel commercial, at the moment those aspects are in testing phases and extremely expensive. Using VR, one can explore the universe and it's wonders without facing the dangers of space travel.
