From a young age, we’ve all wanted to become astronauts. It’s basically a rite of passage!
If you’re the geeky type, then there’s a fairly good chance that you even attended space camp!
With the onset of teenage years and adulthood, many people’s hopes and aspirations to wander out into the cosmos died down. What caused this? Well, there’s really no telling is there?
For the fortunate ones among us, the dream never really fizzled out. It’s a sweet life, following up on NASA launches, subscribing to sci-fi content, marking dates when meteor showers happen, attending Comic-Con… the whole shebang.
If you have a fellow space enthusiast or friend, then, you probably know how obsessive they can get at times. At AstroReality, we perfectly understand the predicament though, space travel is without a doubt the coolest thing ever.
That’s why we’ve come up with a host of awesome space gifts for the holiday that you can take delight in. Our highlights reel is sure to contain a couple of squeal-worthy items that will definitely capture your imagination. Read on!
Watched by a TV audience of about 500 million worlds over, we got the very first glimpse of what we’re truly capable of during the Moon landing. Afterward, there was a better understanding of just how expansive the universe is.
Cognizant of the fact that human imagination has long marveled at what lies out there, we decided to do something about it and bring the heavens just a bit closer.
Our inspiring LUNAR Pro is nothing short of state-of-the-art. Using data provided by NASA plus the craftsmanship of some of the finest modelers in the 3D industry, we’ve been able to deliver a jaw-dropping performance.
You can prepare your “oohs” and “aahs” for when you sample what high-resolution topography actually looks and feels like.
For dreamers, gift them the world’s most precise moon replica: our LUNAR Pro model crafted with up to 0.006 mm per pixel precision based on data captured by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. 3D printed and hand-painted, this model pairs with our augmented reality to let you explore the moon’s surface and even and retrace the steps of the first men to walk on the moon.
The red planet has a lot of mystery. That’s probably why it’s heavily featured in so many Hollywood shows and magazine stands. Given its close proximity to Earth, Mars is a treasure trove waiting to be discovered.
The MARS Pro is one of the best space gifts you can give since it’s made with absolute precision and care. Using VisiJet PXL technology, we made a point of ensuring that the colors on the red planet stand out. This means that there’s loads of eye-candy for your viewing pleasure and the design follows NASA’s MOLA elevation maps of our close neighbor.
From the AstroReality app, you can learn aplenty about the mountains, volcanoes, and canyons that help make this great planet special.
If you’ve had a glimpse of the news, you’ve probably heard all the talk about terraforming Mars. While it seems like nothing more than a wishful dream at present, our technology has been evolving at such a rapid pace that the whole initiative seems plausible in the not so distant future.
At 7 billion strong, not all of us can safely make our way to Mars. However, if you’re looking to go down history books, you have the perfect opportunity to do so now. NASA just conducted a student contest to name the Mars 2020 rover.
You can get to learn about all this and more once you cop the MARS Pro model.
It really wouldn’t be a complete holiday gift guide if we didn’t include this. Eager to impress, we’ve updated the AR experience to ensure that it’s the perfect space holiday gift for kids and the family to enjoy.
This excellent educational gift is available in an assortment of packages to ensure that space enthusiasts get blown away from the word go.
Once the wrappers are tossed to the side, there’s great fun for you and the family to unlock under the hood. The accurately designed 9 mini models (Mercury, Earth, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) can be viewed in full glory either from a planet-centric lens or from a vantage view of the entire solar system.
The Solar System Mini Set is one of the best space gifts because it can be utilized in a good number of occasions like birthdays, graduations, and career promotions. It’s a brilliant space gift for the holidays too since it promotes pooling together and encourages a sense of community.
As this holiday gift guide shows, living a space lifestyle doesn’t come easy. However, the highlighted planetary models are sure to bring you up to speed. During this holiday season, we felt that it’s only right for us to choose a couple of the best space gifts so you can share and connect with friends and family.
Make sure you head over to our AstroReality website and sample the plethora of options available to you!
