Product Description
3D presentation of Milky Way galaxy dates back to third century B.C. The word galaxy is derived from the Greek galaxias, literally "milky", a reference to the Milky Way. Galaxies contain varying numbers of planets, star systems, star clusters and types of interstellar clouds. Archimedes, known for important discoveries in astronomy, constructed a bronze planetarium in which the earth and heavenly bodies all moved in their orbits when a crank was turned. Unfortunately for Archimedes there are probably more than 170 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Can you help him to study to this one?
