Space enthusiasts can visit NASA’s eyes website to get a sneak peek into a plethora of cosmic wonders.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, has revamped its “Eyes on the Solar System” website, which will let space enthusiasts explore the solar system and even simulate spacecraft.
First spotted by HotHardware, the updates on the 3D visualization tool will make “it easier to traverse the solar system in more interactive manner. Since its creation two years ago, the tool has seen many updates that include better controls, improved navigation, and new opportunities to learn about the cosmos.”
According to a NASA official and as cited by HotHardware, the beauty of a new browser-based website is that it invites exploration and visitors just need an internet connection, a computer device with a web browser and some curiosity.
Space enthusiasts can visit the website to get a sneak peek into a plethora of cosmic wonders in the solar system including planets, their moons, asteroids, comets, and spacecraft from 1950 to 2050.
The website will also let users simulate the landing of NASA’s spacecraft. This includes the Perseverance rover that was launched in 2020 to seek signs of ancient life and collect samples of rock and regolith (broken rock and soil) for a possible return to Earth, according to NASA.
The website will further keep a tab on the unmanned Artemis I mission after its launch, which is likely to take place in the later part of the month.
