Abstract: Virtual reality (VR), long the focus of science fiction, has emerged in recent years as a prominent medium for public entertainment. However, its applications in science (non-fiction) are much more impactful, offering up unique simulation and analysis opportunities in medicine, geoscience, and manufacturing, to name a few.
