May 25, 2016

Alexandria, Virginia - Vito Technology today is thrilled to announce the release of Solar Walk 2 Free, the next generation of the company's best-selling 3D solar system guide on Google Play Store. Redesigned from the inside out, the new Solar Walk 2 is a powerful educational tool at the edge of graphic technology that shows wonders of the solar system seen as never before. Based on real physics and latest photographic data, Solar Walk 2 comes to life with stunning visual effects of planetary atmospheres, solar flares, auroras and asteroid belts to give the space depth and feel that hadn't yet been possible on a mobile device.

The free version of the app opens the door to the spectacular solar system at any chosen moment of time in the past or the future. User can access the full list of features in In-App purchase store. In Solar Walk 2 life of the solar system is presented as a series of events: celestial (solar eclipses, conjunctions, etc.) and man-made missions. Users can experience the progress of space exploration and see how the planets moved at the time and how they are going to move in the future.

With the new Calendar users can travel with Voyager 1, see how gravity assists helped Cassini get to the outer edges of the solar system, and explore Hubble as if you were right next to it. 60 spectacular 3D models of important space missions and satellites are available in high detail and travel according to their actual coordinates.
