Celestia Astronomy Education Software
Celestia is the free space simulation that lets you explore our universe in three dimensions.
Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn't confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy.
All movement in Celestia is seamless; the exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to spacecraft only a few meters across. A 'point-and-goto' interface in Celestia makes it simple to navigate through the universe to the object you want to visit.
Celestia is expandable.
Celestia comes with a large catalog of stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and spacecraft. If that's not enough, you can download dozens of easy to install add-ons for Celestia with more objects.
Celestia runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
Note: The Celestia download is a self-extracting archive - just extract to a folder on your thumb drive and run from there for full portability.
