The universe is immeasurable and always expanding. Even the most sophisticated instruments created by top scientists to explore outer space have failed to measure how massive it actually is. Now, with the Smithsonian Planetarium Projector, your son or daughter can bring the vast expanses of the universe into his or her own bedroom! Featuring full 360 degree motorized rotation, any surface in a darkened room can be filled with nebulae, galaxies, and planets. Three included slides each contain eight high-definition images that will make children feel as if they are actually traveling through space viewing each of these amazing celestial bodies in person and learning about astronomy in the comfort of their own home.
Through dazzling visuals, children will gain insight about the universe and see what we as humans have come to understand and how much there still is to be discovered. When not taking a close-up look at the high-definition images of well-known celestial bodies, children can simply use the astronomy tool as a star projector that fills the entire room. Since the Smithsonian Planetarium Projector for kids features 360 degree movement, the stars travel across the walls much like the stars in the real night sky. Once children are able to see how expansive the universe is, they may be shocked to think about the Earth as a mere speck in a much bigger outer space. Of course, being placed in the center of the universe may cause others to feel an ego boost.
The Smithsonian Planetarium Projector has the following intergalactic features:
