A fully rendered, scientifically accurate 3D universe

Get set for launch. “Eyes on Exoplanets” will fly you to any planet you wish—as long as it’s far beyond our solar system. This fully rendered 3D universe is scientifically accurate, allowing you to zoom in for a close look at more than 1,000 exotic planets known to orbit distant stars. With the click of a mouse, you can visit newly discovered gas giants, Earth-sized planets and “super Earths”—rocky like ours, but gargantuan. The program is updated daily with the latest finds from NASA’s Kepler mission and from ground-based observatories around the world as they hunt for planets like our own. You can instantly find out the time it would take to travel to each planetary system by car, jet plane, bullet train or starship. Use an overlay to compare the orbits of planets in our solar system with those around other stars. Or you can search for planets that might support life by toggling the “habitable zone” display, showing the region around a star where temperatures are right for liquid water. “Eyes on Exoplanets” is powered by NASA’s Exoplanet Archive, the official database used by professional astronomers engaged in exploring new worlds.
