  Galaxies 3D

A freeware tool to explore the galaxies

Galaxies, as your personal 3D telescope, allows the virtual exploration of the most beautiful galaxies in the Universe in high resolution. Sombrero, Cartwheel and Mice galaxies are just three of these amazing cosmic formations that can be seen in great detail with just a few mouse clicks. Loop function, zoom in and out and basic information about each galaxy you are exploring: some of the most important features of this free application. Please notice that each of these huge structures contains hundreds of billion stars, bigger or smaller than our Sun, which are held together around a central, supermassive black hole by gravity and by the unseen, mysterious dark matter. There are more than twenty pictures of galaxies that were adapted and edited for this application; all the original images have come from these three important sources: ESA/Hubble telescope  www.spacetelescope.org, ESO observatory  www.eso.org  and www.cosmotography.com. Space key acts like a toggle button, it changes the application's main menu on and off.
