Description

Worlds Apart is a model of the solar system. Hand tuned for performance and realism, it uses hardware accelerated 3D graphics to give you a higher detailed, smoother and more accurate view of our planetary neighbourhood. Prepare for a very different view of the planets than from any ordinary handheld planetarium.

Experts have been crafting clockwork models of the planets for centuries. The design is called an orrery. Worlds Apart follows that tradition by changing the enormous scale of the solar system, to make it easier to see in motion. The sun, planets and moons are all enlarged, and the vast distances between them reduced in size. You can even switch them back to their real sizes to compare, if you like.

• Detailed graphics of the planets and major moons

• Spin each world around like a globe with your touch

• Fly between the worlds

• Control time and push it into fast forward

• Track the position of any planet or moon as it moves

• Highly accurate position models for thousands of years past and future

• Informative articles on every included body in the solar system

• Biographies of the great astronomers who discovered these worlds

• Information about the space probes we have sent there

• Included tours to get your exploration started

• A brand new take on a grand old way to learn about where we are in space

We’re providing Worlds Apart for free so you can try it for yourself. The expert ability to fly around everywhere in the solar system is a low cost in-app purchase if you find you really like it. We appreciate your interest and support. Have fun and fly safely.
