Solar Walk is an Android application that offers a three dimensional model of space. With the help of a digital guide, it is possible to study the solar system.
You have the ability to explore space using the app. There is a 3D model of the universe around us, teaching blocks about planets and the Sun. The interactive map makes the study of astronomy an exciting process.
The utility offers advanced settings for displaying objects of the Solar System. First of all, you can look at the cosmic bodies in real time or in a more compact way. Second, in classic or 3D mode. If you have special glasses, then you will see how celestial bodies and their companions become voluminous on your screen.
When you look at the map of space, you see all the planets that are in the same place as they are today. It is possible to change year, month, day, or hour to see what the universe looked like at the time you were born, for example.
Solar Walk can be used anywhere and at any time without an Internet connection. This will allow you to read interesting facts about space, learn spacecraft in detail and just look at our solar system when it is necessary.
There is a similar application called SkEye for space exploration. The main difference is the ability to synchronize a smartphone with a telescope, making the study more serious.
