Space Engine


A science-based Universe simulator, featuring billions upon billions of galaxies, nebulae, stars, and planets, all shown at their full real-world scale. Explore Earth and our neighboring worlds in the Solar System, orbit a black hole in a galaxy billions of light-years away, or visit anything in between seamlessly, with no transitions.

In Space Engine, all of time and space are yours to explore – cruise between the stars at a million times the speed of light, and accelerate time to watch the orbital motions of a thousand worlds play out before your eyes. Every planet you encounter in your journey will feature procedural 3D terrain with detailed textures.

 Everything you see in the sky, stars and galaxies, planets and moons, asteroids and comets, black holes and neutron stars, star clusters and nebulae, are yours to explore at the press of a button. You are free to move around the universe – travel seamlessly between any object and any distance, from surface to orbit to interstellar and intergalactic space.

Moving through space is as easy as “click and go”, as well as game-style free flight using the WASD keys or a gamepad. Also, time travel is possible: you can accelerate, decelerate, or reverse the flow of time, and jump to a specified date. Detailed interactive tutorials will familiarize you with the controls.
