Imaginova Corp. has announced the release of the US$49.95 Starry Night Complete Space & Astronomy Pack, Deluxe Edition. Available for Mac OS X v10.3 or higher and Windows, the package includes two CD-ROMs with 50 interactive, guided tours of our solar system, the Deep Space Explorer CD-ROM to let you explore beyond the Milky Way, the SkyTheater DVD, which includes more than an hour and a half of original movies about space, and the Starry Night Companion, a 192-page illustrated book.
Planets are illustrated with three-dimensional texture maps, while multimedia movies, computer animations, images and videos help teach users about what’s out there beyond the confines of our own planet. You can learn to identify nearby planets in the night sky, view images from the Hubble Space Telescope, identify constellations and more. Imaginova hopes to spark the curiosity of “budding astronauts and future space travelers of all ages.” System requirements call for a G3/450MHz or higher, 128MB RAM, 500MB hard disk space and an OpenGL-compatible graphics system with at least 32MB VRAM.
