Description: SpaceEngine is a 1:1 scale 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 neighbouring 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.

Review: Trying to put ‘SpaceEngine’ without sounding like some sort of Space-lush is almost impossible. To put this experience in simple terms it takes what ‘No Man’s Sky’ does and turns it into our own galaxy. Want to fly to the planets (Mars, Pluto, Jupiter)? So what you may ask! There are hundreds of apps that allow you to do that in VR. But this one then allows you to land on them and explore them. This is one of those apps that until you start playing with it and finding out the limitless possibilities it offers you can really appreciate it. If you love space, or just like to escape reality, this is the perfect app and one of those rare apps that make it worth owning a VR headset for.
