Remember building a solar system in high school? Cups and papier-mache balls are in the past, because Solar Walk is an interactive orrery that shows all planets and satellites of the solar system in their correct positions in real time.

This 3D solar system model lets you navigate between planets, see their positions on a specific date, explore how they move and why. You will see the entire Milky Way galaxy from a far and zoom in to study all the planets and satellites in close-up, learn their trajectories, inner structures, history of their exploration, and geography.

Every planet has extensive information: size, mass, orbital velocity, exploratory missions, thickness of structural layers, and composition of atmosphere.

“Can’t-miss app.” - Mashable

“Solar Walk serves up a visually impressive 3D model of our solar system. Set against a haunting, atmospheric soundscape, the app shows planets and satellites in their correct positions, and offers mini movies, facts and other related tidbits.” - TNW

“This jaw-dropping app provides a wholly interactive 3D model of our solar system, one that’s had me hooked for days. It’s the kind of thing you can imagine a science teacher using in the classroom of the future — except that we don’t have to wait.”

“Zoom from Mercury to Pluto (which makes the cut in this app), passing each planet’s moons along the way. Because Solar Walk knows what time it is, the planets are in proper orientation to the Sun: Earth is dark where it is currently night and gradually lightens to daytime on the other side.” - NY Times

Customer Reviews

Bug fixed

Updated. They appear to have fixed the bug. My son love the app.

**Upgraded to the full version for my five year old son. Freeze, delete, reload freeze, delete, reload, freeze... well you get the idea. $7.99 to add insult to injury.

Fix your app and I will be happy to update my review. Disappointed.**

Garbage

I have never done this before, trashed an app because of deceptive in-app purchases and horrific ad policy. This one deserves it however. The ads are horribly bad in the app. Why destroy all utility of your app with ads? To make money that's why. Profit is more important than customer satisfaction. But it's free you say, what do you expect? I expect an app that has some utility and that encourages me to try then buy the real app. This one is so pathetically bad that it encouraged me to trash it.

Space

It's a precise way of learning about space,I really like it.
