Star Wars turned into real life? A National Aeronautics and Space Administration doctor appeared as a hologram at the ISS for a telemedicine visit with an astronaut on October 8, 2021, according to a recent release from The National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

The “holoportation,” a word made from transportation and hologram, features a life-like visual and audio connection between the space center and those back on Earth.

According to an April 8 release from The hologram, Dr. Josef Schmid and his crew were holoported to the International Space Station using the Microsoft Hololens Kinect camera and a personal computer with custom software Alexa. Josef Schmid had a virtual conversation with astronaut Thomas Pesquet as part of a 3D telemedicine visit.

Dr. Josef Schmid said, “We’ll use this for our private medical conferences, private psychiatric conferences, private family conferences and to bring VIPs onto the space station to visit with astronauts.”

The technology allows users to interact with remote participants in 3D as if they were physically in the same space.

“It is a brand new way of human exploration, where our human entity is able to travel off the planet. Our physical body is not there, but our human entity absolutely is there.”

For further updates, please stay tuned.
