In the first half of 2019, we launched 3DMAP-VR1 (three-dimensional Modeling of Astrophysical Phenomena in Virtual Reality), a project aimed at visualizing 3D MHD models of astrophysical simulations, using VR sets of equipment. The models account for all the relevant physical processes in astrophysical phenomena: gravity, magnetic-field-oriented thermal conduction, energy losses due to radiation, gas viscosity, deviations from proton–electron temperature equilibration, deviations from the ionization equilibrium, cosmic rays acceleration, etc. (e.g., Orlando et al. 2011201520162017).
