Want to explore the solar system? Here is your chance to do that for FREE.
A browser based app has been released by U.S. space agency NASA that allows you to navigate the solar system in 3D. A video game technology is embedded within the app to let you control your view point from anywhere in our solar system. In addition to that, you can speed up time to see movement of planets, satellites and other space aircrafts.
This is the first time the public has been able to see the entire solar system and our missions moving together in real time. It demonstrates NASA’s continued commitment to share our science with everyone.
The app also includes some custom modules to highlight different missions and allows you to keep checks on current locations of NASA’s spacecraft.
Here is what you have to do:
Step 1: Go To Eyes on the Solar System app.
Step 2: Download and Install the Unity Web Player for PC or Mac.
Step 3: Watch the intro and tutorial videos to get started.
Step 4: Click on Explore The Solar System and start navigating.
