Description

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.
* 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.

Exceeded Expectations!

This complex app, Exoplanet, is an extremely educational free app made for iOS (version 17.1.0). It is designed to provide interactive visualizations and animations in order to share information on all known exoplanets. An exoplanet is a planet orbiting stars beyond our own Solar System.

This app is designed for anyone ages 4 and up. Exoplanet is advertised as extremely accurate and anyone using it can be assured that they can rely on its data having been developed and maintained by a professional astronomer.

The app is also visually pleasing. For instance, if the milky way option is selected you are given a wonderful visualization of the Milky Way galaxy with labels to include the Sun. You can zoom in or search for any star, constellation, or planet and it will show you the location of the searched star or planet and along with its surroundings.

This app is chalked full of information! You can choose any planet and it will give you information such as the mass, radius, density, orbital period, and more! This app would be great for projects or research because it provides information on the Milky Way, extrasolar planets, spacecrafts, asteroids, galaxy clusters, and cosmic microwave background. The more I researched it the more I realized that this app exceeded my expectations! If you’re looking for an intriguing app full of information about space, Exoplanet is for you!

Wonderful must purchase

Although I am a PhD in psychology, this app gives us the proper perspective for our place in the universe and an incredible view of our galaxy, planets, suns, asteroids & etc. This is an amazing app for students, all the sciences, the curious and citizens of earth. This is the most under used gift to everyone on earth, all teachers need to get this app to start informing all who want to be educated. Great thanks to all the scientists, technicians, astronauts, everyone who build our telescopes and statisticians who created this magnificent gift of an app that everyone should purchase and for every child to contemplate.

Amazing

This app has been absolutely awe inspiring and profoundly important to me for years now. There’s no field more at the forefront of human ability and human significance than that of exoplanetology. The exoplanets app has detailed information about thousands of extrasolar objects. You can even virtually explore our Milky Way galaxy, while staying up to date on the latest exoplanet discoveries, nearly in real time. Here’s a big thank you to the apps designers and for making it free! I bought the KOI add-on just to show my appreciation because The Exoplanet app has literally changed my life!
