    Solar System Explorer HD Pro'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.

    This paid version allows to get free updates, even more data and get rid of ads.

    Soar into space and visit 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!

    This pro version of Solar Explorer includes more spacecraft, more functions and has no ads!

    ★ HD graphics and awesome music and sound effects
    ★ Easy to use and intuitive controls
    ★ Detailed information about dozens of planets and moons
    ★ Images based on real photos taken by telescopes or NASA spacecraft
    ★ Ideal educational introduction to the solar system 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!

    Become the pilot. With the new free-flight option, you can take direct control and fly the spaceship yourself. 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 both space-based 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 moons is estimated from what can be seen.

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

    Places to visit in the Solar System Explorer orrery:
    The Sun, otherwise known as Sol
    Planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars
    Gas giant planets: 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 planets: Ceres and Vesta
    The former planet Pluto
    Spacecraft including NASA's Voyager, Juno, New Horizons, Dawn, Cassini, Pioneer and Russia's Zond 3

    Solar System Explorer: the 3D solar system simulator for pocket astronomers!

    Good fun! I'd like it a little more if you could hide all the boxes etc when the time function is running and you're watching a planet spin.

    This is very simple app to use but brilliant in it's information and presentation. A fantastic virtual (guided) tour of our heavens. My son and daughter and I, have spent hours learning, dreaming and getting closer because of what is so far away. Thank you Neil, for all that you have put in to this project and for all that we get out of it. One of our favorites!
