Celestia Brings Space Exploration To Your Desktop

Filed under
Software

Celestia is a free software package that graphically simulates celestial objects ranging from the earth and our solar system to distant constellations and galaxies.

Simulating motions, light and shadow in three dimensions, the program generates amazing 3D images and allows the user to travel to any place in the universe and visit planets, comets, and other objects in the solar system.

The program is licensed under GPL and versions are available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.

I'm working on it right now. I won't finish it before bedtime, so it'll probably be tomorrow after work before I can finish it and post it.

The Changelog and rpmlist are up now tho.
