Does the job of displaying the solar system.
Limited view (I'd say "views" but there's only one).

Does not work on Windows 7
It gives a crude display of the mechanics of the solar system, however there are far better products out there.
Graphics are awful. Interface is clunky
Recommend Earthsim 2 if you want beautiful images of the planets in the solar system or Celestia if you want a rich database of the heavenly bodies
from this we can clearly make out the solar system and how it rotates
I dont kow
useful to understand the rotation of planets
Simple and easy to understand our solar system
Graphics could be better, still a very good program.
Good teaching aid, makes it easier to understand our solar system.
This would be a good program for a child to see how the Solar System works.
Very little user control of the interface. Saturn does not look like it should because it looks like a rock with craters and the rings don't look right either.
This is only a good program for a small child to see how the Solar System works. If you want something with Great Graphics and more for other children and adults then download Celestia.
Easy to use.
Easy to get hooked on it.
Nothing substantial stands out.
graphics and motion are great
not that much there.
Its an educational simulation of the solar system. Children grades K-3 will find this very informative.
No control of the simulation. Can not manipulate the parameters by any means.
All in all this is an educational simulation of the solar system. This is good for K-3 grade children. As for anyone else this is poor simulation because there is no control other than changing the view point and getting information on any of the eight planets and Pluto. I only recommend this product to those with young children so they may learn about the solar system.
If you haven't a clue, this program's for you! It will lead you well into the history of scientific thinking.
Hello! There's aren't 9 planets in our solar system once Pluto was downgraded to non-planet status. And that didn't even happen this year. How old IS this dog of a program? Pre-Asteroids game? Pre-Pong??? Graphics are laughable at best.
This was well worth the price: nothing. Thank goodness I didn't waste time downloading it; I was doing something else simultaneously. This is inaccurate, graphically bald, and basically embarrassing. c/net needs to maintain a higher quality of active downloads or people are going to stop using it as a source. Previous reviews are from years ago when something this shoddy might have passed as valuable. But those in c/net who know this download is still here are obviously not looking at it. Does c/net update its download stock or are items simply included and left here to grow outdated?
I'm sorry but another horrific download like this one and I'll use the site solely to point me towards the possibility of finding something interesting elsewhere.
