More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 5+.

Exoplanet Explorer takes you on a journey into deep space, beyond the limits of our Solar System. Based on the latest available scientific data, you'll explore working, virtual 3D models of more than 600 star systems that are known to have planets.

In addition to the intuitive touch-driven interface that allows you to fly through our Galaxy, Exoplanet Explorer offers a comprehensive search tool which will let you sort and filter the planets, focusing on features like a planet's atmosphere type, it's composition or even whether it's likely likely to have a hot, warm or cold surface.

Useful information is available at the touch of a finger to explain the scientific terms used in the application, including the methods used to discover these worlds and how the planets and stars are categorised.

Tools are available to give you a visual comparison of the size of the exoplanets alongside our own or to see the "goldilocks zone", the region around a star where the temperature is "just right", where liquid water could exist on the planet's surface, making it potentially habitable.

The data is sourced from The Planetary Habitability Laboratory, which is a research and educational virtual laboratory dedicated to studies of the habitability of Earth, the Solar System, and extrasolar planets available. Additional data is sourced from the online SIMBAD database. If data isn't avaiable, the app itself will make calculations, giving you access to one of the most complete exoplanet databases.

    I thought you could land on planets and explore them but I was wrong. :(
