NASA astronaut Terry W. Virts recently posted a photo to his Twitter account showing him using a laptop as a virtual reality display to train in the use of the Simplified Aid For EVA Rescue (SAFER) jet pack. Astronauts use the SAFER during spacewalks to prevent them from floating away from the International Space Station.
