The Space Engine is free space simulation software that will allow anyone to explore outer space in three dimensions. The viewer is able to go from earth to distant galaxies thanks to the use of data. Known areas of the universe are filled using actual astronomical data while unknown regions are filled with procedural data like stars, galaxies, star clusters, planetary systems and nebulae. Known data includes information on galaxies, stars, star clusters, solar system planets, extra-solar planets and nebulae.
This free space simulation software is a fantastic learning tool for the classroom or for at home. It provides visually stunning imagery, accurate mapping that uses actual collected data and a view of space impossible to find on video or in books.
