Explore NASA’s New “Exoplanet Travel Bureau”

| 0 comments

Here’s how Smithsonian Magazine describes NASA’s new “Exoplanet Travel Bureau”:

NASA has launched the Exoplanet Travel Bureau, a visualization tool that allows users to explore the surfaces of three exoplanets: Kepler-16b, Kepler-186f, and TRAPPIST-1e. The 360-degree visualizations, which can be seen on your computer, phone, tablet or using a virtual reality headset, are artists’ renderings—there are no photographic images of these planets, so the graphics are based on hypotheticals. You can change the scene by adding or subtracting hypothetical atmospheres, creating skies, clouds and weather.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Planets & Space.
