The US space agency NASA has released a new version of Eyes on the Solar System. This is an interactive map of the solar system that allows you to explore the planets, moons, asteroids, comets and spacecraft from 1950 to 2050. In other words, it allows you to literally look into the future, at least for several decades.
This update has improved 3D rendering, added new controls, increased image resolution and detail. Also, the developers have simplified navigation.
The new service is available on the website NASA’s Eyes. There you can select the desired object to view data about it. You can also speed up time, change the scale, and so on. Other features include a “telescope mode” that lets you land on Mars or another planet and see the night sky and star positions from its surface.
The first version of the tool was released back in 2010, then it was a separate application NASA’s Eyes Visualization.
However, in reality, things are not so smooth. Launch of the SLS lunar rocket with the Orion spacecraft so far postponed.
