Solar Walk - 3D Solar System Model is a hybrid app for the iPhone, iPad and Mac that allows you to explore the solar system in 3D.
The 3D model in Solar Walk is a scaled reproduction of the real Solar System and the latest update is designed to explore not only the Solar System, but the whole Milky Way Galaxy. Among then most interesting features are the ability to view the biggest cities on the globe, the 10 most interesting Earth satellites and points of interests on Mars, Venus, and the Moon. In addition, there are educational videos to inform you on certain aspects of the universe.
You can click and explore just about anything although some stars aren't clickable. Some dwarf planets, moons, satellites and asteroid belts are also missing but in general, the level of detail is superb. The lack of information may be because Solar Walk - 3D Solar System Model was originally released on iPhone and iPad and hasn't been fully developed for the larger screens on Macs.
Solar Walk - 3D Solar System Model is a superb educational tool for anyone with an interest in the universe.
