About Solar Walk™

Solar Walk is an excellent app for teaching astronomy to students with outstanding visualisations, short videos, information about all the planets in the solar system and a most impressive 3D feature that can be used to enrich the learning environment. This 3D Solar System model enables you to navigate through space and time, observe all the planets in close-up, learn their trajectories, inner structure, history of their exploration, points of interest and more. Use 3D mode to get a more realistic experience and zoom out to view and spin the entire Galaxy.

Solar Walk™ Review

The Solar Walk app includes an interactive model of the galaxy. You can tap on planets and stars to learn about their trajectories, structural make up, and the history of their exploration. The app also lets you plug in a specific date, past or present, and it will display how the planets were aligned. Solar Walk also has 3D models of some of the man made satellites orbiting in space.

Our entire solar system can be explored through this excellently presented app. The interactive environment allows you to zoom from one cosmic body to the next to discover facts or view a gallery of photos. Along with a range of videos, details of space missions and even a 3D view function, Solar Walk will amaze just about everyone!

  • Galaxy view: users can zoom out to view the entire galaxy.
  • Time machine: a neat feature where users can move to any date in time to see where the planets would be.
  • Movie collection: Solar Walk includes several educational videos such as why the solar eclipse happens.
  • Satellites: view real-time positions of Earth’s satellites.
  • Locations: an arrow will display all of the current positions of planets, comets, asteroids, moons, etc.
  • Info: detailed information about all the planets including name, radius, distance to the sun, and more.
