This module, integrated in Centro de Ciência Viva de Guimarães, offers to its visitors a journey throughout the Solar System, exploring the planets and the asteroid belt. It is an enhanced interactive experience, made possible by the passage through a tunnel, whose walls are projections on canvas with multi-touch usage.
This navigation throughout the Solar System is automatic: it begins on the Sun’s position, going through, at regular pauses, from planet to planet, starting on Mercury and finishing on Neptune, after crossing the asteroid belt.
At each stop, there are information points with which the visitor can interact to further deepen its knowledge about the celestial body drawing near. The visitor can also visualize that the curved projection, in the form of a tunnel, allows to capture information from two opposite point of views of the solar system, aiming a more intense and immersive journey.
