Exploring the space, planets, stars, our galaxy and the universe. Has always been an exciting topic. And there's always something new to discover and explore. Learning about other plants, how space objects orbit in the outter space. What is out there? Countless stars, planets, galaxies. It's facinating, mysterious, and beautiful.

So How Can We Explore the Space?

That's a valid question. With all the wonderful and mysterious objects out there. How can we explore them? I'm talking about the average person that doesn't have access to NASA level technologies and privileges.

Luckily for us, someone took the time, put in efforts and created the most realistic, and scientifically accurate space exploration simulator.

The program (game) is called Space Engine. Developed by Vladimir Romanyuk.
