This is a high quality 3D printed model of the planet Mercury. When you view the planet through AstroReality’s app, you can use it to examine the planet and learn about its features.
The AstroReality Mini Mercury is an ideal educational tool. Students can hold the planet and examine it as a 3D model or through the augmented reality of an app that will work on most iOS and Android platforms.
The Mini Mercury also makes a fantastic gift for those who are interested in space and want to have their own model of the Solar System’s closest planet to the Sun.
The models are printed with the latest 3D printing technology and then the final details are hand finished to give exquisite detail and reality to the tactile models.
Mercury is a dense rocky planet and pocked marked with craters, much like the Moon. It is 57 million kilometres from the Sun and tidally locked with a 3:2 resonance. This means on Mercury you would only see a day every two years (Mercury years). A Mercury year is 88 days in length.
