Check this neat little program out. Some of you will find this incredible. Well NASA keeps a record of all of the findings they have made in the universe and this neat little baby called space engine is the key to viewing it all. That's right, you can basically travel through a simulation of the entire universe and even go to other galaxies. Of course our knowledge of other galaxies is still slim but will still be recreations from data collected. However our obtained data from our own galaxy actually isn't as bad anymore since they have had the Kepler space telescope in outer space. I believe it's gone now I can't remember, nonetheless the data they collected in inside this program.

View any planet in our galaxy from this data and travel the stars anywhere you want. The data is represented legitimately for what they currently know. Yes I'm aware certain areas are not depicted properly from lack of this data, however it's interesting to view the planets they currently know about. Check it out and leave your comments below

That is awesome, I'm sure it will be like the year 4000 but maybe by then humanity can go see it for themselves?

If anyone has tried this at all before let me know. I haven't given it a shot yet as my computer might not be able to handle it but it would be something to do later.

Yeah I've heard good things about it. Am yet to check it out myself though. But still shared it because I'm hearing good things on different youtube videos and it does look fun to use.

I remember hearing something about this awhile back, but never gave it a shot. Might give it a try, as I have the minimum specs on my desktop.
