Have you ever built a Solar system model? Cups, bowls, and papier-mache balls are in the past, because Solar Walk is a time-sensitive accurate information-packed interactive model of the Solar system and the Milky Way galaxy.
This 3D Solar System model lets you navigate through space and time, see all the planets in close-up, learn their trajectories, inner structures, history of their exploration, points of interest and more. It even has detailed 3D models of the most interesting man-made satellites. Use 3D mode to get a more realistic experience and zoom out to view and spin the entire Galaxy!
- GALAXY view - absolutely magical zoom out to view the whole galaxy option
- TIME MACHINE - set any date you want including even minutes and take a travel through space and time
- MOVIES - explanatory movie collection about the Earth's phenomena
- SATELLITES - real-time trajectories of the most interesting artificial Earth's satellites
- LOCATIONS - arrow will show your current position on the globe, plus names of the biggest cities of the Earth, as well as sights of the Moon, Mars and Venus
- INFO about all planets - general info, its name, its mass, radius, distance to the sun, internal structure with the picture and science missions
- MOONS of DIFFERENT PLANETS: select a planet like Earth, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars or Urano and observe how many moons they have and their track around the planet. Select one of the moons and learn
