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.
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.

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.
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.
