The Model consists of 3 main Views (Heliocentric, Geocentric and Panaromatic), including:
Precise Positions of all Celestial Objects according to NASA Calculations. Schematic Distances and Sizes for better understanding of Planet Surfaces and Motions. A unique feature to Drag Planets through their Orbits. A lot of interesting Settings which allow you to Observe particular Motions and Events. Distance Calculator to measure distances between Planets even while in motion. Earth Observatory set-up with which you can watch Celestial Happenings on your Night Sky SSS mean Astronomy for Everybody Kids play with Planets while Discovering Universe. Our youngest regular visitors are only 7-8 years old. Many Teachers use our model as a practical Source of Education and with SSS they are able to show and simply explain happenings in our Solar System. But anyone can benefit from SSS: it brings Knowledge, Fun and Visual Experience.
Integrating Solar System Scope In Classrooms. Who would have guessed the day would come when we could take our students on a realistic field trip through space? That is exactly what the Solar System Scope makes possible. For young students, it would be fun to plan a class space mission. Prepare your students as astronauts, load into your classroom spaceship (which may just be chairs and desks specially configured for the day) and prepare for launch. ”Fly” through the universe and solar system using an interactive whiteboard or projector-connected computer. This is almost like having a planetarium right in your classroom. Pretty cool!
