Have you ever wanted to explore our Solar System? To be able to fly between planets, look at their surfaces and learn more about them. Well now you can with Our Solar System VR. Using a Google Cardboard headset, you can explore the Solar System in 3D virtual reality.
The model of the Solar System features the 8 planets and the Sun with real textures. The distances between the planets is realistic, but their sizes have been made larger to make it easier to navigate. Information boxes provide information and facts about each object, whilst still allowing you to marvel at the beauty of our Solar System.
