    Solar System Explorer 3D's review

    Published: 2012-03-26, by Peter Warrior.

    "A comprehensive encyclopedia of the Solar System"

    • Great UI
    • Great scientific app

    "The third from the Sun"

    Although there's people who thinks that there's a device to travel beyond lightspeed buried under the moon of Pluto and not so far ago there was who believed that there were water rivers throughout Mars surface, reality often is more interesting that fiction.

    Solar System is an interactive encyclopedia of whatever lies from the Sun to the reaches of Kuiper Belt. It's well wrapped in an wonderful user interface and an unexpected awesome music. Amount of data is huge, and will satiate every astronomy savvy needs. It doesn't matter if you want this app for studying, flat curiosity or needs, it's absolutely awesome. If it lacks of something is that it's only a compilation of data. Perfect to have that info at hand or learn every day a little, but otherwise the nicest complement to Google Sky or NASA apps.

    Chek out the paid version to get updates, even more data and get rid of ads.

    Soar into space and explore dozens of planets, moons and asteroids on an exciting journey through our solar system. High definition graphics and atmospheric music will make you feel like you are there!

    HD graphics and awesome music and sound effects
    Easy to use and intuitive controls
    Detailed information about the places you visit
    Images based on real photos taken by telescopes or NASA spacecraft
    Ideal educational introduction for kids
    An atmospheric experience in the vacuum of space!

    Easy to use controls make navigation a breeze. A simple tap will send you soaring into the outer reaches of deep space. Another tap will return you safely home to Earth.

    There’s lots to see and do. In addition to beautiful graphics, Solar System Explorer also includes a great deal of information about the planetary systems you’ll visit. Learning has never been so enjoyable!

    With the new free-flight option, you can take direct control and fly the spaceship yourself and become the pilot. Accompanied by a rumbling engine, you’ll be swooping through the asteroid belt, diving through the gas giant Saturn’s rings and surfing the upper atmosphere of planets. It’s the next best thing to a space walk!

    The 3D models in this app are based on photos taken by NASA spacecraft and ground based telescopes. Because some of the moons around the gas giants have only been visited once or twice, we may have partially complete images. Missing surface detail for these objects is estimated from what can be seen.

    In this solar system simulator you can explore the brilliant blue-green Uranus, knocked onto its side by a massive collision. Visit the proto-planet Ceres which makes up one third of the mass of the asteroid belt. Marvel at Neptune's moon Triton which orbits in the opposite direction to Proteus. Take in the sights of the Jupiter's heavily scarred moon Callisto, its surface pockmarked by countless impact craters.

    Places to visit in this solar system orrery:
    The Sun, otherwise known as Sol
    Planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars
    Gas giant: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune
    Moons: Luna, Deimos and Phobos, Callisto, Europa, Ganymede, Io, Mimas, Tethys, Enceladus, Dione, Rhea, Titan, Iapetus, Miranda, Umbriel, Ariel, Oberon, Titania, Triton, Proteus, Charon
    Dwarf: Ceres, Vesta and Pluto
    Also, catch up to NASA's Voyager spacecraft on its lonely journey into the cosmos

    This is the 3D simulator for pocket astronomers!

    It could be a wonderful learning tool for those wanting to explore the Solar System, yes there are some inaccuracies with some of the planets and the laws of mechanics, but l could have lived with that. What has put me off and l am sure many others is the intrusive ads, way too many and many are completely inappropriate. At least give us the option to remove them with a small fee. Sadly will be uninstalling.
