Using the latest exoplanet data from programs by NASA and the European Space Agency, Cosmic Atlas is a true-to-scale 3D environment where users can freely explore our small section Milky Way galaxy and examine thousands of newly discovered stars and exoplanets.
The latest planetary system data is collected from a number of public research programs, including the University of Puerto Rico's Planetary Habitability Laboratory and the NASA Exoplanet Archive, which is operated by the California Institute of Technology, under contract with NASA under the Exoplanet Exploration Program.
Cosmic Atlas was built by two dreamers, space nerds, and longtime friends Dan and Max. What started as Dan’s passion project evolved into something much bigger and five years later, we’re excited to share our work with the world. We hope you enjoy using the app and we look forward to releasing more features that inspire your inner explorer and celebrate the incredible work of space research programs around the world.

This app is unique, I have sky safari and it is very detailed, I did not think I would need an astronomy app ever again until this app came along and changed everything. The one thing that I have been looking forward to all along is finding an app that not only has exoplanets, something sky safari does not have, but 3D model for each them, that pretty cool. I really look forward to more features and the other 2,000 discovered exoplanets models I know will just be stunning. Thanks for all the hard work you put into the app, you definitely made one customer happy!
So cool! Such a fascinating way to explore the universe without going too far or needing to try too hard. The visuals are stunning and I love how I can go around and do whatever I want or jump to specific planets and stars to learn more. Overall, super cool, really pretty, and quite informative.
This is a great app. Very interesting. For a while, it was one of my favorites, a 5 star app that I bought for like $3.00. But now, after I bought the app the first time, it became free. And now almost all the features you have to buy for $1.00, even though I bought the app before that upgrade. Why doesn’t it transfer over so I don’t have to pay $4.00 for what people are now paying $1.00 for?
