Explore the Galaxy
in Glorious 3D
from your PC
...to boldly go where no man has gone before!
Now you can get lost in space, fly anywhere in virtual space, at any speed, in any direction and at any time in history
A real-time, three-dimensional view of our solar system, the galaxy and the universe.
“Oh Boy...How cool's this! This is like being in your own space craft. You can blast off into
the stratosphere, through the solar system, out to the stars and even beyond the Milky Way
galaxy with this terrific astronomical software called 3DAstronomer™”
You ever looked up into the night sky and really wondered about where we fit into it all? Asked yourself what's out there? How far does it go? What do the other planets and stars look like close up? What exactly do the space stations look like? How far does the universe extend? Where did we come from and where are we going?
I bet you have. We all have.
My Very Elderly Mother Just Sat Up Near Pluto
Now you can stop wondering and get out there and see everything first-hand. Well –
almost. See exactly how our planet fits into the solar system and the galaxy. Take the trip,
man. Turn on, turn in – drop out into space. Float downstream. Marvel at the universe.
“Look at this thing! You got kids? Are they driving you crazy? Hey stick them in front of
this thing and with any luck they'll get Lost in Space. Ha ha. But seriously...this software
is amazing! A real trip”
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Yeah – get into space - virtual, correctly-scaled outer space on your computer. With this
software - 3DAstronomer™ - you can check out the other planets one by one – sitting at your computer (PC only, for now). You remember the old meme don't you? The order of the planets from the Sun – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and good old Pluto – named after Mickey Mouse's dog.
Mickey Mouse's Dog?
Actually we now know that Pluto isn't really a planet. Its more of a dwarf planet and its made up of rock and ice smaller than our moon. So if you were thinking of going there for your holidays I'd cancel. Go to Saturn instead. That's a happening place. Its got those beautiful rings for starters. And some great beaches I hear. Although it can be a bit windy this time of year – gusting to 1200 MPH. Jupiter is a better bet. Its the largest planet in the Solar System so it stands to reason it has more to see and do. Check out The Great Red Spot. I've heard that place really hots up after midnight. You can even see it from Earth – after the Moon and Venus it's the third-brightest object in the night sky.
"Breathtaking." Easy to use. Realistic, real-time, images. Ability to Select objects, go-to
object, follow object, rotate about your own position, or the selected object, follow selected
object while viewing another, etc. Excellent.- m. holden
Hey you wanna go check out the giant space telescope Hubble – the collaboration between the European Space Agency and NASA. Talking about Hubble – have a look at what this Australian guy has done – gone and built a 1:1 laser-cut plywood copy of it. Why?
It's ART doncha know. Love this comment -
“The cool thing is that since the artist has the plans for this thing in Illustrator, it could be easily transformed into a papercraft project.”
LOL. That's one Hubble I'd like to see.
"Excellent Simulation of Stars, Planets and Moons" It is extremely detailed with smooth
fluid animation. You can go to any planet and moon in the solar system including newly
discovered planets. You can even visit the American and Russian space stations and the
Hubble. - zior
Or you can use 3DAstronomer™ to see how the Ruskies are getting along with the Americans on the International Space Station (ISS) – the largest artificial satellite orbiting Earth. Well – it's not only Russians but Europeans and Japanese collaborating as well. A Russian spaceship carrying three astronauts – a Russian, an American and a Ninja landed safely in Kazakhstan last week. Their sixmonths gig was up. But the trip back to Earth only took three and a half hours.
Wonder what they eat on that ISS space station? Yeah...space food but I wonder if they cater for special tastes? Like Sushi and caviar and all those cabbage dishes the Reds are so fond of. Speaking of which...you know what happens when you eat a lot of cabbage don't you? In a confined space. Yeah...let's not go there. Or if you really want to know - What Would Happen If You Farted in a Space Suit.
BTW you can see the ISS with the naked eye. Its the one with the Coca-Cola neon signage (kidding). But it must be pretty big huh? I know it's expensive. Supposed to cost between 35 billion dollars to 160 billion dollars by the time it's finished at the end of next year. And get this - the ISS is believed to be the most expensive object ever created. What monetary crisis eh?
...an encyclopedia of space. It's a keeper. You can go here, there and everywhere with a
click or two. The background stars can be identified with one click, just get them in the
target and click. I also liked the click and grab feature which let one scan the entire view,
360 degrees. I must have spent an hour playing with all the menu bar options just to see
what they'd do. This program is very very easy to navigate and configure and the data it
will show is unbelievable! - nmweatherman
Here I am floatin' 'round my tin can
So yeah – with this new astronomy software 3DAstronomer™ you could zoom right up close to the space stations and see what's happening. See how the party is panning out.
Or with a few mouse clicks you can be looking at enormous galaxy clusters. There's thousands of them. And some are like 400 Million light years away. But no worries – just turn your 3DAstronomer™ to Warp Speed and you can effectively go forward in time – light years away – to visit these outer galaxies. See what I mean about getting Lost in Space? What is out there anyway? If you come across something, can you report back?
"This program provides a virtual, correctly scaled solar system on your computer. To say it's
amazing is far short of the reality! Please give it a try so that it will keep being developed."
Maybe you've got stars in your eyes, as it were. I don't blame you. They are beautiful aren't they? And fascinating. And there's over 100,000 of them. Most are very old - between 1 billion and 10 billion years old. Holy cow! That's old. Some stars may even be close to 13.7 billion years old— as old as the universe. Frankly – that freaks me out. I can't wrap my head around that at all. Its like the poser Where does the universe start and finish? Who knows.
How do you tell the difference between a planet and a star in the night sky? I was always
taught that stars twinkle while planets emit a steady light. Something to do with the effect of the earth's atmosphere.
The nearest star to Earth is The Sun. And yes – with 3DAstronomer™ you can go check
it out. Bit hot this time of year though. Be sure to take plenty of Sun Screen and a broad-brimmed hat.
Visit Sirius this summer – it's a mere 51 trillion miles from Earth! And the brightest star in the night sky – probably why it was important for navigation before the advent of GPS.
"I am continually dumbstruck about what it can do. Anybody who has even a slight interest
in our solar system, our galaxy, or beyond will find this software remarkable". - uneasyrider
Do It Yourself Time Travelling
- With 3DAstronomer™ you can also go backwards and forwards in time – in light years! Stephen Hawking (the genius in the wheelchair) once suggested that the absence of tourists from the future constitutes an argument against the existence of time travel. But you gotta wonder. With this app you can wind up the warp Speed to light years in the future or past and see what was what.
Speaking of time-travelling – this wack-job claimed to be a visitor from the future – 2036 to be exact
“In his online postings, Titor claimed to be an American soldier from the year 2036, based in Tampa in Hillsborough County, Florida, who was assigned to a governmental time- travel project. Purportedly, Titor had been sent back to 1975 to retrieve an IBM 5100 computer which he said was needed to "debug" various legacy computer programs in 2036; a reference to the UNIX 2038 timeout error.
Titor claimed to be on a stopover in the year 2000 for "personal reasons"; i.e., to collect pictures lost in the (future) civil war and to visit his family, of whom he spoke often. Titor also said he had been, for a few months, trying to alert anyone that would listen about the threat of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease spread through beef products and about the possibility of civil war within the United States.
When questioned about them by an online subscriber, Titor also expressed an interest in unexplained mysteries such as UFOs. Titor suggested that UFOs and alien visitors may well be time travelers from much further into the future than his own time, who possessed superior time machines to his own."
- Unlike a lot of other astronomy software that just focuses on some aspects of space, 3DAstronomer™ gives you the whole enchilada - journeys to the planets, their
moons, the stars, the asteroids, the galaxies and the planetary nebulae - ALL in one
place. These visits are up-close and personal and in vivid detail with exceptional 3D graphics and animations. You can also visit lots of spacecraft and have a close
- With 3DAstronomer™ there's a whole new world out there – uh...scratch that – a
whole new universe out there to explore – for you to get lost in space.
Coming Back Down to Earth
I've been a bit flippant in my preamble here but 3DAstronomer™ is not a toy. It's a serious 3D space simulator and 3D astronomical database. It's used by space enthusiasts as well as professional astronomers and astrophysicists. But – as you can see - it has settings and controls that even a child can use.
This phenomenal open-source project takes data gathered by the European Space Agency and maps it in 3D. It displays exact telemetry, positional data of celestial objects, integrates real imagery from NASA space exploration and hundreds of dedicated developers. All of this in an easy to use, yet powerful application that lets you take a 'life-like' journey into outer space.
“I've looked at lots of simulators and this is one of the most realistic astronomy software
3DAstronomer™ has been built to be as lifelike as possible. You can travel within the solar system, out to the stars, and even beyond the Milky Way galaxy.
Included in the base installation are over 100,000 stars, nearly 100 solar system destinations, and 60 recently-discovered extrasolar planets. With information on each item you view and new places to go, 3DAstronomer™
How it works
When you first launch this 3D Astronomy software, you may think that everything is static, however take a closer look and you will see everything is actually moving. You can see how the moon orbits the Earth and how the Earth orbits the Sun. You can then speed everything up and zoom out to see how the whole solar system interacts over any period of time.
With 3DAstronomer™ you can do even more than travel through the universe in real- time or at hyper-speed! The Universe is huge and to combat this a sophisticated zoom feature has been integrated that lets you explore space like never before.
“Absolutely the best astronomy app I've seen”
