Introducing 3D Astronomer
As children, we dream of someday exploring the great unknown: the vast universe beyond our earth’s atmosphere. Unless you are an astronaut of can shell out 100,000 dollars to catch a ride into space, chances are the closest you will ever get to the stars is your own back yard on a clear night.
We are excited to introduce our first-of-its-kind space simulator, 3DAstronomer. Now you can explore the wonders of the universe- and you can do it safely in the comfort of your own home.
3DAstronomer is like Google Earth, but for the entire solar system and beyond. We have taken data gathered by the European Space Agency, including imagery, telemetry, and positional data for planet, asteroids and stars, and mapped it in 3D.
The program is easy to use, with basic settings a child can manipulate. The program is suitable for educational purposes, for space enthusiasts, and professional astronomers or astrophysicists. Get up close and personal with the red sands of Mars, the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, or the blazing surface of the sun. Visit the searing surface of Venus and view it in a panoramic 360° vista.
There has never been a space simulator program like 3DAstronomer. It can take you anywhere in space you want to go, and show you the wonder, beauty and the vastness of our galaxy… and beyond.
