Exoplanets are planets orbiting stars beyond our own solar system. This app allows you to explore all discovered exoplanets, their measured physical properties, their location in the night sky, and their host stars. An interactive model shows you the entire observable universe, all the way from the surface of the Earth to the cosmic microwave background. This app has been developed by a professional astronomer.

Main features:

* Interactive visualizations and animations.
* Physical properties of all detected exoplanets and their host stars, updated on a daily basis.
* Stunning 3D model of our Milky Way showing the location of all known exoplanets. You can zoom into any planetary system, explore how the night sky and the constellations look from the surface of other planets, or zoom out and see other local galaxies and galaxy clusters as well as the cosmic microwave background.
* Visualizations of exoplanet orbits and the habitable zone.
* Choose between the Open Exoplanet Catalogue, the NASA Exoplanet Archive, and the Extrasolar Planet Encyclopedia (exoplanet.eu).
* Push notifications are sent out whenever a new planet is discovered.
* Augmented reality sky map: point the phone towards the sky to find an exoplanet!
* Interactive multi-touch correlation plots.
* Solar System planets, major moons, and asteroids are included.
* Explore S-Stars orbiting the black hole at the Galactic Center of our Milky Way
* Background information about exoplanets and detection methods.
* Full support of planets in binary, triple, quadruple systems and orphan planets.
* Real-time ray tracing on the GPU.

Of the games ,

I Always Used To Play This! But..

This was my favourite game when I was younger, I bought the galaxy pack and I zoomed out, until I saw the universe. I nearly had a heart attack, I cried all night on how scary it was. I’m sure that if you removed the large portion of the universe I might play this game more.

Easy to use and update

Had the app for a number of years and am pleased with results, would have been 5 stars but after purchasing the add ins one of them provides a consistent error message - the CMB and full zoom out add on does not function even after removing and re-loading the app, the error messages just invites a repeat purchase

Easy to use, interesting and up to date

Have had this app for a number of years. Always ahead of the news, it has really useful and extensive information on exo planets.

I bought all of the add ons at early stage and they really enhance the app. I’ve tried others and none match up to this - it’s the definitive database for the amateur (and, possibly, professionals).
