Solar Walk - Let's find out more about our neighboring planets in the Universe, play around with them determining the speed of circulation, time, choosing a particular planet to become the center of the Universe, seeing the moons of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and Urano. The 3D model in the Solar Walk app is the exact reproduction of the real solar system.
Solar Walk stands out among other astronomy applications having a very beautiful and smooth graphics and animations. The Earth as well as other planets look so realistic that you can even see the clouds together with the relief of mountains, lakes, oceans.
Benefit greatly from using Solar Walk for interactive learning and getting closer to the universe!
· 3D SOLAR SYSTEM: play with the 3D model by moving around the Solar System. Zoom in, zoom out, investigate it from different angles. You can observe not only the current position of planets in our solar system but also learn their position at a definite period of time in the past or in the future! For this use Time Machine feature.
· FLY to the PLANET: having chosen a planet from a far, tap an image of a "rocket" to fly straight to the planet. Enjoy a beautiful and realistic image of a planet!
· READ INFO about the planet: by tapping the "i" button you learn general info about the planet, its name, its mass, radius, distance to the sun, internal structure with the picture and science missions.
