Experience the captivating wonders of the cosmos with Galaxy Map - Stars and Planets, an interactive 3D planetarium powered by precise data obtained from NASA and ESA space missions. Delve into a profound expedition through the infinite expanse of space, where an abundance of knowledge is readily available, directly sourced from the forefront of groundbreaking space research.

Traverse the vast expanse of the galaxy, soaring through the stardust as you journey to millions of stars. Land on alien planets and exomoons, where breathtaking landscapes and untold wonders await your arrival. Embrace the thrill of plunging into the turbulent atmospheres of gas giants to reach their elusive cores.

This app includes both the "Galaxy Map" and "Stars and Planets" apps, with all their in-app purchases included (and future addons).

Push the boundaries of exploration as you venture closer to black holes, pulsars and magnetars, where the laws of physics are stretched to their limits.

With Galaxy Map - Stars and Planets, the entire universe becomes your playground, providing an unmatched platform for discovery and enlightenment.


▶ Immersive spacecraft simulation allowing users to fly to different planets and moons and explore the depths of gas giants

▶ Land on exoplanets and take command of a character, exploring the unique surfaces of these distant worlds

▶ Daily updated information on exoplanets from multiple sources, eliminating the need for manual application updates

▶ Extensive online database encompassing approximately 7.85 million stars, over 7500 exoplanets, 205 circumstellar disks, 32868 black holes, 3344 pulsars and over 150 moons in our Solar System (plus exomoons)

A fun way to travel the stars without having to go through all the trouble of joining Star Fleet.

Developer Response ,

It's actually HIP 1599 and it is in the database. It doesn't appear as Zeta Tucanae because only some of the stars were set manually with their proper name.
When importing catalogs, there are no star ids such as Zeta Tucanae or Zeta Reticuli, I had to set them manually...and didn't set them all.

Will try to clean up the database - but I'm working on reimporting it, with more stars, hopefully some from GAIA.
