NASA's Solar System Treks

Use the same data NASA's scientists and engineers use to create 3D surface visualizations of some of NASa's prime science targets on your home computer.

  • Moon Trek integrates interactive tools and several generations of Moon images and science to create a comprehensive lunar data visualization tool.

  • Mars Trek is an application that allows you to view imagery and perform analysis on data from Mars.

  • Vesta Trek showcases the rich data collected by NASA Dawn spacecraft which was launched in 2007 to study asteroid Vesta and the dwarf planet Ceres

NASA's Eyes

Travel the universe using actual real-time data—from the fleet of Earth observing missions to the mysterious worlds of the distant TRAPPIST-1 system—from the comfort of your living room.

  • Eyes on the Solar System lets you explore the planets, their moons, asteroids, comets and the spacecraft exploring them from 1950 to 2050. Ride with the Curiosity Rover as it lands on Mars or fly by Pluto with the New Horizons spacecraft all from the comfort of your home computer.

  • Monitor our planet's vital signs, such as sea level height, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and Antarctic ozone. Trace the movement of water around the globe using the gravity map from NASA's GRACE satellites. Eyes on the Earth displays the location of all of NASA's operating Earth-observing missions in real time.

  • Eyes on Exoplanets enables you to fly you to any planet you wish—as long as it's far beyond our solar system. This fully rendered 3D universe is scientifically accurate, allowing you to zoom in for a close look at more than 1,000 exotic planets known to orbit distant stars.
