WHAT EXPERTS THINK:
“With this educational app, the whole family can go on a scientific expedition.”
"This app is a must-have for teachers and parents of all ages. Get them interested in science, help them understand relative size and simply have fun exploring how everything compares."
"This fascinating tool, which can help kids visualize the scale and vastness of the universe, has plenty of potential for classroom use."
We continuously improve our app, and we would like to hear your feedback.
- We added Ultima Thule - the farthest object visited by a spacecraft. On January 1, 2019, New Horizons encountered Ultima Thule 43.4 AU from the Sun or 6.5 billion km (4 billion miles) from Earth.
- Information update for several objects
- Minor UI and sound improvements and bugs fixes.
Thank you for your support, bug reports, and your feedback!
Ratings and Reviews
Amazing learning tool
What a tremendous app this is. Perfect blend of information, usability (coolest zoom/expand feature EVER), and even the background music is perfect for a space information app. I wish you had more users and ratings, because this would be a very popular app if more people knew about it. Thanks for your hard work, and please don’t abandon the app or give up hope—it may take time, but this app’s eventual popularity is worth the wait!
Spock Would Say... Fascinating
Like one other reviewer wrote, this app is listed for ages 9 to 11. But this is easily an app that goes at the college level and beyond and is fantastic - at any grade level. It kept me fascinated in my doctors office for about 30 minutes.
Kids love it too. It kept my seven-year-old busy for about an hour one day. It’s a size relativity application, as it is kind of hard to explain what it does. Trust me at any price it’s worth it.
It does what it says- it demonstrates orders of magnitude and varying scales in sizes with links to their wiki pages. It's a novelty unless it's updated and fleshed out so I hope to see regular updates. Half a star removed since I haven't seen any. The music is kind of sad; regular repetitive, spacey, space music … I'm not sure why this turns out to be the default the way oboe concertos and whale songs are for giving birth, but they weren't what I wanted then either. That's half a star.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
