Solar System Scope: Explore Space Online
One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?
Good news for Space-philes and science project procrastinators alike, you can now explore the solar system from the comfort of your own desk.
Solar System Scope, released in March, is a free, web-based, interactive tool that allows viewers to check out the solar system from a heliocentric geocentric, or panoramic view.
With different tools, viewers can examine the real-time positions and movements of the planets and their moons, the distances between each, the location and distances of constellations, and the properties of that used-to-be-planet Pluto. See for yourself on the Solar System Scope website.
