A redesigned version of the classic Panex with three columns and an empty one.

Panex Galaxy is an extended version of the classic Panex puzzle, invented by Toshio Akanuma and manufactured by Tricks Company in Japan in the 1980's. Please refer to the separate entry. Whereas the original Panex puzzle has two columns of pieces that need to be switched and an empty one, Panex Galaxy has three columns of pieces and an empty one.
The challenge of the puzzle is to swap the silver and gold columns. If one can solve the classic Panex puzzle, one can solve this puzzle as well. However, the solution for the classic Panex is highly inefficient for this one, so one may want to find a more efficient solution. The staircase design assures that each colour can only be moved down to its specific depth.
