The use of powerful visualization technologies in astronomy and planetary science education offers a new and exciting learning experience for students. Simulations and VR make use of updated scientific data. This makes the presentation of complex phenomena easier. Experience with teachers and students shows that without mentoring and guidance, the effectiveness of high-tech astronomy programs is reduced significantly.
