"The Solar System - Explore your backyard" is a highly immersive application that illustrates rather well the vastness of the world around us. Information regarding planets, constellations and countries are available at the click of a button, and in a fashion rarely seen. Rather than simply telling you the facts, I find that it's easier to show you; This means that instead of just reading about the gravitational pull or cross section of a planet, you get to view it in 3D in real time.

This video is a quick fly-through, showing the different features available. Everything you see is 'In game'.

Edit: a lot of people have commented about the scaling. As i said before this is just a work in progress so far, however there is a readout at the bottom of the screen. In the video when zooming in and out, you can see at the bottom of the screen the scales of the planets, moons and sun. There are options regarding scale and I'll go through them in a later video, but just know that everything IS to scale, it is simply enlarged to make it much easier to see, otherwise you'd only see the planet when you're completely zoomed in. However, if that's what you want, the option exists to make it that as well.
