Summary:"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. """"Eyes on Exoplanets"""" is powered by NASA's Exoplanet Archive, the official database used by professional astronomers engaged in exploring new worlds."
