MilkyWay 3D is interactive 3D map of The Milky Way Galaxy. It shows world from far away, showing us that human everyday worries are not as huge as we see them. For the majority of people exploring the Galaxy is impossible – my work gives them an opportunity to see into the Universe without leaving their homes. My project also gives the ability to be in-charge of solar system – You can change planets’ scale, rotation speed, show orbits or turn on constellation mode. MilkyWay3D is extended to Virtual Reality (VR) what bring brand new experience.
