What is Humanity: First Woman In Space?

Humanity: First Woman In Space transports you into the body of the first woman to go into space.  View the world through the eyes of Astronaut Turova as she navigates through the male dominated world of astronaut training. Experience how it feels when most people around you don't believe in you. 

Research shows that this type of experience can reduce your bias: by playing Humanity: First Woman In Space, you are not only having fun but you are increasing harmony in the world!

Compatibility: Oculus Quest and PCVR

  • Oculus Quest: This experience can be used on the Oculus Quest 1 and the Oculus Quest 2 by downloading the apk file! 
  • PCVR: This experience will work on any SteamVR compatible device when using the .exe file!


Humanity: First Woman In Space is still in development and for now only the first part of the story - before the Rocket Launch - is available. We are looking forward to your feedback to shape the second part of the story, which happens in the spaceship. The second part of the story will include: asteroid shooting, panels fixing, 0 gravity flying. 

How does it work?

Humanity: First Woman In Space is based on scientific research about increasing empathy and decreasing bias/ discrimination through the use of Virtual Reality.  If you’re interested in learning more about these topics, please reach out to us via contact@wondder.io

This was very cool to play! I think I spent more time just looking at the rocket than actually playing the game. There are some bugs that I saw, but it didn't really ruin the experience. Overall,  Great job!!!


Wouldn't it have been more intellectually honest and a greater honour to women to base this experience on Valentina Tereshkova, the actual first woman in space? who flew a solo mission in 1963, or do the facts not fit in your narrative and message?

100% of space crime is committed by women.


how about the option in the demo to 
not need the vr thing ?


That's a cool idea, 
We'll think about it thanks

it said the game licence had expired and kicked me off it

Yes, as this game is also used for commercial purpose. We have to set a limit. If you want the game to work again, delete the Woman in Space folder and download the game again.

wow you guys are very fast, sometimes if i leave a comment it could be months before i get a reply


I sadly don't own any VR equipment but i wanted to say that the concept and the idea is wonderful :) 


Thanks a lot! :)


Very immersive experience! It’s very interesting to be a person I would otherwise not play in a game or similar. Gave me a new perspective - especially the press conference scene!

Thanks, its nice to hear this!


It was a great experience to view the world from the eyes of Turova. It was unique to live through the hostilities that the first woman in space faced. 
The part where the astronauts are in space was great. 

I would recommend you to go through this VR experience. 



I loved your ideas. I really enjoyed being someone else, I could even feel the stress inside me during the conference (when I was supposed to speak). 

I hope a lot of people will try it and that it will have an impact on the society. :)
