Explore the solar system in comfort

Solar System Explorer HD brings dozens of planets, moons, and the spacecraft that have visited them, from the comfort of your own home.

Featured are the inner rocky planets Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. In the far reaches lurk the gas giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Approaching the edge of the solar system, the former planet Pluto wanders in its leisurely 228 year orbit.

See the moons that hurtle around the worlds of our solar system, and the asteroids that accompany the planets on their journey round the Sun.

Intuitive and beautiful

Solar System Explorer’s user interface is styled after a 3d space action game. A simple touch will send you flying through the solar system at warp speed. Planets and asteroids whip by as you close in on your destination.

Many planets and moons are rendered using highly detailed photos from robotic spacecraft. Mountains and surface features cast shadows as the planets and moons whirl round the Sun. The asteroid belt is artistically presented with dense mountains of rock tumbling through space between the Mars and Jupiter.
