There are plenty of static moon models that can be found in classrooms and space centers around the world, but AstroReality is making these teaching tools more dynamic with the integration of 3D printing and augmented reality.

The perfectly to-scale 3D-printed AstroReality Lunar Model has been precisely rendered in high-definition. As AstroReality claims: "It’s built with the most accurate 3D printing technology available in the market, which means it is modeled with 0.006 millimeters per pixel precise renderings of the moon’s surface based on data captured by NASA’s Lunar Orbiter science team."

AstroReality is now providing space enthusiasts with the tools to bring it to life with augmented reality. With an app, users are able to learn facts, embark on missions and challenge themselves with trivia.
