NASA Releases Web App to Control Solar System in 3D

If you’re interested in taking a three-dimensional, pinch-and-zoom view of the solar system, NASA’s new browser-based web application called “Eyes on the Solar System” is worth giving a look. Based on video game technology, the app allows you to control your point of view from anywhere in the solar system, letting you view planets, stars, satellites and spacecraft.

“This is the first time the public has been able to see the entire solar system and our missions moving together in real time,” said Jim Green, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division at the agency’s Headquarters in Washington. “It demonstrates NASA’s continued commitment to share our science with everyone.”
