Today, if you start browsing the internet, sooner or later you bump across one or two space theme websites. Sometimes the space theme is relevant for a website, sometimes it is used just to show off a design. This approach is not always worth it. However, I have come across a lot of interesting solutions, which I would like to include in this comprehensive review and share with you.
An outerspace theme is a very broad subject and liked by a lot of people with different interests: science geeks, designers and psycholgists. So, do not be offended, if I forget mentioning your favourite website or web design aspects. If you have some suggestions, I will be glad to receive links, which I can add to my blog. Welcome!
Interactive animated 3d-models
