Solar System Explorer will take you on
an interactive 3D trip through our solar system. Featuring more than 35
planets, moons, asteroids and the spacecraft that have visited them,
you’ll have a chance to see a different side of our little corner of the
This full edition delivers all the
planets and major moons of our Solar System in glorious HD with extra
effects and a special tablet mode, so it will look great on all devices,
large or small.
Solar System Explorer also features
detailed models of past present and future robotic explorers, such as
Cassini which is currently half way through a 20 year mission to study
the Saturnian system.
Surface images of the planets have been
re-constructed from photos taken by telescopes or NASA spacecraft.
Because few probes have been to the outer solar system, a number of
moons have only been photographed from one side, so the missing details
have been estimated based on what is visible.
Orbital positions and speeds have been
adjusted to make it easier to navigate the Solar System and see the
planetary motion at human speeds.
Interesting facts about each of the
places you visit in the solar system, and the spacecraft you see are
available at the touch of a button.
Statistics are calculated relative to the Earth where ever possible because for most people, big numbers mean little.
There may only officially be eight
planets now, but because Pluto is larger than 200KM in radius, it is
included for your viewing pleasure.
