Do you feel like taking an intergalactic trip through space in 3D? Of course you do. And thanks to SpaceEngine, a free space simulation program, you can! The journey begins on Earth, then propels you out towards the cosmos.
SpaceEngine can display every type of celestial object known to modern astronomy – so don’t think the experience is limited at stars and planets. In fact, the program is so detailed that it enables users to control time to better observe the rotation of planets and their orbital movement. You can even pilot your own spacecraft! This is every wannabe astronaut’s dream come true – aside from you know, being an astronaut.
Because the program is so massive, the system requirements you’ll need to run it are as follows: a computer with a 2GHz processor, 2GB of memory, a 512MB video card, and Windows XP.
