Description

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!

Review Highlights:

This product is, in every sense of the word, awesome! Everytime I go to evaluate this product I get lost in space! There will be some feature like zooming out of our solar system until all you see is the sun getting smaller and farther away until its visualized in its own spinning arm of our amazing Milky Way. Then turning the Milky Way in all angles as if you are some omnipotent eye perceiving the cosmos from any perspective!

Wow, this product has so many incredible aspects. The simple movies describing commonly heard terms in astronomy give a visual to the otherwise difficult to perceive concepts. The orrery is interactive and brilliant. The clock feature is mind blowing as you look forward and backward traveling through time. The features of stars and planets as you navigate around them, and on them in some cases, is just overwhelming. The reminders of how much space navigation we have studied as a species is incredible, coupled with how much we still don't know gives this product a fascination that I have not seen in anything else. I could play and learn from it all day.

Finally, the inspiration of this product to seek out and learn more in the field of astronomy is a natural development of a product that is truly special. It sparks excitement and creates wonder and beauty of our existence in the universe.
