Together with fresh historical information, Google and NASA present the solar system in augmented reality.

With an updated collection of AR-ready 3D models that feature fresh historical annotations, Google and NASA are hope to encourage the next generation of space explorers.

Google has been providing 3D models of many of our solar system’s planets and moons for a while now. These are even capable of being displayed in your home using augmented reality technology similar to Google’s 3D animals.

Today, Google Arts and Culture unveiled a brand-new online exhibit made in association with NASA that highlights some of the most amazing achievements in contemporary science and astronomy. With stops along the route to highlight accomplishments like the International Space Station, the display does this by concentrating on one planet at a time as it moves from Mercury to Neptune.

Google is releasing a new annotations option for its more educational 3D models at the same time as the new solar system exhibit. You will see markings on famous events and well-known sites while viewing a NASA 3D model of a planet or moon in Google Search. For instance, the lunar model depicts the locations of China’s Change-4 and Apollo 11’s landings.

Not only are these new annotations being used by Google’s 3D planet models, but by other applications as well. The business has upgraded biological diagrams , spaceship models, and other things. These annotations are now only accessible when viewing the 3D models using Google Search in a web browser, but it shouldn’t take long for them to become accessible through the Android and iOS apps.
