“In the future, children won’t perceive the stars as mere twinkling points of light: they’ll learn that each is a ‘Sun’, orbited by planets fully as interesting as those in our solar system.”
— Martin Rees, Cosmologist, and Astrophysicist
How much do you know about our solar system? Can you name all eight planets orbiting around the sun?
Our solar system is just one in 500, rotating around some 250 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy. It came into existence about 4.5 billion years ago when a cloud of interstellar gas and dust, known as a solar nebula, collapsed and triggered a collision that formed our sun.
Today, using AstroReality, you can discover the wild frontiers of our solar system through 3D printed Models and Augmented Reality. The Solar System Ultimate Set lets you explore the remarkable planets and moons in a unique and novel way.
Unparalleled View of Our Solar System
Discover mind-blowing facts like this, and more, with the AstroReality Solar System Ultimate Set, the most accurate and interactive 3D model of our Solar System. Each planet and is made using Polymoon urethane (PU) resin and hand-painted to deliver a flawless finish.
With topographic data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and the latest 3D printing technology, we are able to achieve micro-precision to 98%+ accuracy. Topographic features are meticulously printed within 0.0006 per pixels, giving you the chance see and feel every detail. Take a closer look at the impact craters and ridges on Mercury, or discover Olympus Mons, the largest mountain on Mars, standing at two-and-a-half times the size of Everest.
Unique Augmented Reality Learning Experience
AstroReality’s unique Augmented Reality app helps you learn about the Solar System in an unprecedented way. After pairing your model with the free AstroReality app, simply point your smartphone’s camera towards each planet or moon to unlock captivating facts and an extensive library of images and knowledge backed by NASA. Discover why Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet in 2006, or learn about the clouds on Venus that produce the most destructive acid rain in our solar system.
Your Key to the Solar System
With AstroReality’s vast planet and moon collection, students now have the opportunity to learn about the solar system through Augmented Reality (AR). Students of all ages have short attention spans, which means we, as parents and teachers, constantly need to look for new and exciting ways to keep them engaged.
Teachers who integrate technology within the classroom have the opportunity to make learning more fun and enjoyable, which encourages active participation and improves retention rates. By using technology, students can develop skills essential for the 21st century and benefit from learning at their own pace by reviewing difficult concepts or skipping ahead when ready.
AstroReality’s Solar System Ultimate Set offers an out-of-the-box educational tool that can facilitate learning both within the classroom and at home. Using a smartphone or tablet, students can immerse themselves in an interactive and gamified universe of content, covering the cosmos of our solar system. From simulations of world-famous astronomers like Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, and Isaac Newton, to intriguing facts about Jupiter’s four illusive moons, the Ultimate Solar System is a fun way to educate and entertain.
