Exoplanet

Age Level: Ages: 12 +
By Developer: Hanno Rein


This app is awesome for tracking exoplanets around the Milky Way. Of course, if you don't know what an exoplanet is, that might be an issue. An exoplanet is a planet that's not in our solar system.

This app has a database of all the exoplanets currently discovered, and is updated with new discoveries whenever they occur. You will find withen it such things as: the host star of each planet, extensive information on each, their orbits and a whole lot more!

The Milkyway in which these planets are nestled is shown in 3D. In addition, there is a "point and find feature" that shows you planets in the zone you have your device directed towards. The zoom feature gives you a closer look.

The app was developed by and is maintained by a professional astronomer.

Additional in-app purchasing available.
Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
