NASA 3D Instagram Experience brings nebulas into your home

A new NASA project allows Instagram users to experience the wonders of the universe as seen by the Chandra X-ray Observatory and other space telescopes. It’s an augmented reality (AR) filter called an “Instagram experience” that takes staggeringly beautiful celestial bodies and places them right next to you on camera.

This includes the wreckage of stars that have been destroyed in massive supernova explosions and dense clouds of cosmic gas and dust where stars are being actively forged. The AR filter has been added to Instagram to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of Chandra, NASA’s flagship X-ray space telescope, which launched on July 23, 1999.
