[App] Solar System Explorer changed to Solar System Explorer 3D
Solar System Explorer : 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.

Solar System Explorer user reviews :
Nice app Good app, although a bit outdated. For example, it doesn’t show all moons around pluto, or information about comets. Anyway, it is overall an interesting app.
Not good at well, but excellent I have a problem. Pluto is not a planet now. In 2006, someone placed Pluto into a dwarf planet group despite some people still recognize Pluto as a planet.
Great! Best solar system app in the play store! You should add some galaxy or something… 😀
