Solar System


Solar System lets you experience the majesty of the galaxy at a level of detail rarely imagined.

An amazing and extraordinarily attractive resource for amateur astronomers… an out-of-this-world digital book that is as informative as it is beautiful.

There is so much to this application that I can only begin to scratch the surface on its offerings. As with The Elements the content and presentation truly make learning fun and inspiring.

A beautifully illustrated story

Written by bestselling author Marcus Chown, Solar System contains more than 150 beautifully presented story pages richly populated with interactive scenes, 3D objects and videos.

Spacewalk amongst the stars

Set the heavens in motion with a fully interactive 3D orrery that lets you control the orbits of the planets and their moons.

Incredible galleries
