Ever since I was a small boy with an interest in astronomy, I’ve wanted an Orrery.
Today, 55 years further on, I’m no closer to owning my very own Orrery than ever I was.
Still, hope is on the horizon. Dr. David Brown has been working on the 21st century’s equivalent of an Orrery with his NUIverse designed for Microsoft Surface. I reckon it will be between 5 and 10 years before this trickles down to Windows 8 Tablets.
I might just be able to make it before I die.
