Link: Eyes on the Solar System
Note: This required a plugin to run: UnityWebPlayer [This is downloaded from the same webpage] Once UnityWebPlayer is installed Eyes on The Solar System runs from your browser.
"Eyes on the Solar System" is a 3-D environment full of real NASA mission data. Explore the cosmos from your computer. Hop on an asteroid. Fly with NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft. See the entire solar system moving in real time.
My screenshots don't do it justice. If you are interested in this topic best to have a look for yourself.
it's trial or full version?
i found this software from exploring biguniverse.co.cc, but not freeware
I installed Eyes on The Solar System a while ago and and so I have the Beta and I am not sure when it comes out of that stage. There are alternatives that are freeware and that have moved beyond the Beta stage like:
Link: Celestia: Home
Screenshots from Celestia:
Celestial will also simulate distant views/objects. However it does not use NASA data in the same way that Eyes On The Solar System does. I am not sure about other alternatives.
Edit: Following this link
