The objective of the graduate qualification work is to provide multi-user interaction and interactive mode of the Solar system 3D objects behavior in the mixed reality network environment in order to increase the visual level and quality of capturing the learning content on Astronomy. The subject area research was performed in the course of the work as well as the target audience of users and their needs were identified. The analysis of existing solutions was carried out in order to define their advantages and disadvantages. Based on the results of these studies, the requirements for the developed MR application and its functional capabilities were determined. During the development process, the user interface was designed, the application design was chosen, the educational content was developed in accordance with the imposed requirements. The application architecture was chosen, the database was designed, the client and the server parts of the MR application were developed. In addition, the rationale for the creation of a website as an additional tool for working with the application was provided. At the end of the product development, the comparative analysis of the MR application with the similar solutions in the selected subject area was carried out, the usability testing procedure was described, and the ways of further improvement of the application were identified. The result of the work is a multi-user MR application for interactive mode and collective interaction with 3D objects of the Solar system and a website that complements and expands its capabilities. Keywords: mixed reality, MR, mixed reality network environment, astronomy, multi-user mode. The work consists of 173 pages, contains 35 reference sources, 2 tables, 11 figures, 14 appendix.
