Can anyone please point me in the right direction of good VR simulations of space missions, manned and unmanned? I am using an entry level good iPhone system... will buy a proper VR headset at a later date!

Apollo would be the main area of interest. It's for a school presentation. The more realistic and accurate the better.

I can't find much on the App Store, hence this post.

There's Go For Launch: Mercury. It's very much in beta status right now.

Search "KSC 360 Expedition" on the app store. It is a tour guide type VR app of the Kennedy Space Center. You can go inside Apollo 14, a Mercury and Gemini spacecraft. You have to navigate around a bit to find them, but it may be what you are looking for.

Thanks. I should have said that the KSC360 app is great but only gives a flavour of what VR sims for Apollo could be like. That lead me to enquire what else is out there, maybe a hole in the market?

Are there any good VR videos of ISS spacewalks for the iPhone VR setup?

Moonpans has some 360 degree VR panoramas made from lunar surface photographs. They are not fully interactive, but can be rotated using the tilt feature of smartphones (press the finger icon to enter tilt mode).
