Take a mind-blowing 3D tour of the Universe with Professor Brian Cox as your guide. The official Wonders app by arrangement with the BBC.

AWARDED APPSTORE BEST OF 2012 US AND UK

Now for iPhone and iPad 1 - with added features: cause the supernova explosion of Betelgeuse! Land on the surfaces of Mars, the Moon, Io and Enceledus!

Journey up from the smallest particles, past the moons and planets of the Solar System, out through the Oort Cloud to the Milky Way, past our Local Stars and out to distant galaxies before arriving, finally, at the edge of the known Universe. On the way you will encounter the likes of seething Red Giants, beautiful Nebulae, pulsing Neutron stars and confront a daunting vision of a Black Hole sucking down a hapless star, all rendered in spectacular 3D.

Professor Brian Cox provides mind-expanding insight in over 200 interactive articles pinned to the stars, planets, galaxies and other wonders modelled in extraordinary 3D, written in his accessible style and accompanied by two and a half hours of video from the BBC TV series Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of the Universe. The app also includes hundreds of infographics and images of space objects supplied by astronomy experts, NASA and other space researchers.

Disappointed

Flesh Gordan

I bought this app when it first came out and it was amazing. Now a few years old I’ve re downloaded it for my 6 year old son as he has a big interest in space ( and has asked for a telescope for his birthday) so it should have bee perfect. But to my dismay NONE of the videos work. Please please sort this out. Where can I get the original app from. It had all the videos built into the app so you didn’t need to stream it from a server that doesn’t work anymore

Amazing, great for all family

Amazing Amazing App

CreativeCores

I am 7 years old iPhone user and have purchased more than 2 thousands apps. Being a PhD student I have keen interest in Science and I can confidently say that this app is by far the best app I have downloaded so far. Such an amazing development skills and amazingly full of knowledge. Off course there is room for improvement and more topics to add but it's surprisingly good piece of work.

There is just one little suggestion for Prof. Brian Cox. The area of research where is trying to find facts from history and religions, he should add Quranic point of view as well. Being a PhD student I am amazed to study Quran in terms of Creation of Universe, it's process and different stages. It is aligned with current scientific studies even though it was revealed 1400 years ago. I would humbly suggest Prof. Cox (if he hasn't yet) to study Quran and he will be amazed to see amazing facts in it in terms of creation of universe, evolution of life and end of all times.

Over all congratulations to build such an amazing app.
