OOSS exhibits are:
- True-to-scale. They provide an accurate impression of the sizes, proportions, and distances of objects in our Solar System.
- Highly-detailed. Two-dimensional diagrams offer several advantages, including the ability to show many more Solar System objects than 3-D models.
- Instructive. They advance understanding and promote scientific literacy by correcting common misconceptions about the Solar System.
- Interactive. Using the included smartphone codes, viewers can quickly find answers to questions they may have about any Solar System object.
- Walkable. OOSS models are perfectly-sized: large enough that the smallest planets are visible, yet small enough to easily walk from the Sun to the outer Solar System and back.
- Affordable. They are less susceptible to damage than 3-D models, and (if it should ever become necessary) replacing a 2-D panel is much easier and more cost-effective than replacing a component in a 3-D model.
OOSS produces two different types of Solar System exhibits:
- The portable version is intended for educators, or anyone who wants to accurately and compellingly demonstrate a true-scale visualization of our Solar System.
- The permanent installation is intended for civic organizations, museums, universities, etc. that wish to promote community-wide scientific understanding and exploration.
