Planetarium 2 - Zen Odyssey
Mac OS Education
Welcome to the Universe Playground
Planetarium 2 Zen Odyssey is a fun and interactive way to explore, discover and play with the solar system and beyond. Create, destroy, and interact with real time physics on a scale you have never-before imagined! Planetarium 2 Zen Odyssey provides a grand open-ended astronomy sandbox experience. The experience allows you to view many celestial simulations, engage in planetary traversal and travel to the furthest reaches of our world with space rockets, probes, rovers and more! , Go on galactic interstellar voyages!
Planetarium 2 Zen Odyssey aims to be the definitive space sandbox experience.
Expansive Sandbox Experience
Explore our solar system and view our planets, dwarf planets and moons. Discover exoplanets light-years away beyond our own solar system and constellations. View Kepler Systems and the TRAPPIST-1 solar system. Enjoy stunning views of our Milky Way, and galaxies such as Andromeda and more. Super massive black holes to view such as the Sagittarius A and other celestial bodies.
Custom Solar Systems and Planetary Collisions
Create your own Solar Systems by adding/removing planets. Edit properties such as the planet orbit radius, direction and speed. You can even scale planets and objects to your liking. Do you want to create an Earth larger than our sun? Go for it! Launch massive planetary bodies and asteroids to view planetary collisions on an astronomical level. Hurl planets and everyday objects and watch gravitational physics in action.
Create and Terraform Planets
Melt polar caps by increasing the temperature or freeze the planet entirely. Add vegetation, clouds, water and planetary rings with its own asteroid belt. Increase the population of your very own planet. Procedurally generate infinite planet variations and terraform a selection of planets, even a mysterious ringed planet!
Realistic and Detailed Space Probes and Satellites from NASA
View numerous probes that have been sent to explore our planets and to discover more about our universe. View detailed models of the ISS, Voyager, Pioneer, New Horizons, Hubble Telescope, Cassini, Juno, Galileo, Dawn, Ulysses, Aquarius, Deep Impact, Maven and many more realistic NASA models!
Seamless Planetary Exploration
Launch off into space with the NASA Apollo Lunar Launch Module or the Phoenix Mars Lander and land anywhere on a planetary body. Blast off with the Space Shuttle and other space rockets to explore fully sized planets. The seamless surface to space exploration allows you to land on any planet that you see. Traverse planets with the NASA Lunar Rover, Curiosity Mars Rover, Mars Exploration Rover and more. Become an astronaut and drift around the International Space Station with the help of the Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU).
and much more…
View solar flares, asteroid belts, star systems, gas giants, constellations, comets and view procedurally generated stars and galaxies. View beautiful Pulsar stars and gravitational waves. Light-warping black holes that distort space. Check habitable zones of our solar system. View stunning beautiful scenic spaces scenes with aurora borealis from space, lighting weather effects and the solar eclipse. Planetarium 2 Zen Odyssey is well suited for all audiences and ages with detailed NASA models to meet your astronomy needs. It is enjoyed by space telescope enthusiasts, teachers, scientists and even successfully used by children of 4+ years of age!
