The Solar System – Interactive


Here is a rather fantastic tool – the Solar System online interactive model by California’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Planets, Moons, known asteroids and satellites are included, in real time – or accelerated time.    And you can pick a starting time – the current date/time or any time between 1950 and 2050.  Tag along with any satellite, moon or planet and see how the solar system looks from there.   Or fly free – in your own virtual spaceship.   Explore the Earth, the Solar System or even the Exo-planets found so far.   It’s a pretty incredible tool in understanding where we are in this universe.
