So, the new Cardboard viewer owners will see a film produced by Jonathan Corum which allows them to fly over Pluto and stand on Pluto’s unique surface as its largest moon hovers over the horizon. The data used were collected last year by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft. Digital-only subscribers selected for this distribution were chosen based on the duration of their subscriptions. Previously, The Times delivered one million Google Cardboard viewers to home delivery subscribers in November 2015. “Seeking Pluto’s Frigid Heart” will publish on May 19 in the NYT VR app, which is free and available for download in the Google Play and iOS App Stores. Launched in November, The NYT VR app lets journalists tell their stories in a new format, 360-degree video. Google also offers an “Expeditions” app for classrooms that lets teachers guide students on virtual field trips to destinations around the world
