Getting started. The universe is yours to create when starting. Select the circle on the top righthand part of the screen to see everything you can including black holes, nebulas, comets, planets, moons, and more. Before selecting, you can also learn a little bit more about each object.
Personalize your space. After creating planets, stars, and more you can even rename all of the objects.
Visit other spaces in the galaxy. And if you're ready to strike out and explore, just zoom out to see the entire galaxy. You can then select another star system actually created by other users nearby based on real geolocation information.
What is it about?
Users can add asteroids, nebula, comets, planets, moons, different sizes of stars, pulsars, and even black holes to their own space. All of the creations move in real time and follow the laws of astrophysics. That leads to a number of fun possibilities like placing two planets on a collision course and seeing the results when you place a black hole near a star. While adding objects, you can move and tilt their iPhone or iPad to see the universe at any angle.
For those who...
- Are interested in astronomy and physics.
- Want to learn more about the laws of physics by creating their own universe.
Not for those who...
- Aren't interested in astronomy or physics.
- Looking for an educational app for younger children.
Why we love it
Along with the beautiful music and great graphics, the app does a great job educating about the universe. It’s highly recommended for anyone who has ever wanted to learn more about space while creating their very own star system.
