Mapping virtual objects to a real-world environment is beneficial for many educational purposes such as a virtual gym for athletic training or interactive anatomical models for prospective medical school students. For this project, we implement spatial mapping to surfaces using the Microsoft HoloLens to project a planetarium that superimposes an interactive solar system for visual educational purposes. The planetarium can be manipulated through gaze, gestures, and voice commands and enhances the understanding of large astronomical structures that are traditionally hard to visualize due to issues with scale. This development paves ways for more exciting and in-depth projects in the future that utilize a head mounted display for educational purposes.
