Eyes on the Solar System Curiosity Simulation

Try the Eyes on the Solar System Curiosity simulation to view the NASA mission in real time!

JPL’s Eyes on the Solar System is a 3-D environment full of real NASA mission data. Explore the cosmos from your computer. Hop on an asteroid. Fly with NASA’s Voyager spacecraft. See the entire solar system moving in real time. It’s up to you. You control space and time.

As a special feature for the Eyes on the Solar System program, you can now experience the Mars Curiosity Rover landing in real time! This visualization lets you ride with Curiosity all the way to the surface of Gale crater. Preview the events of Entry Descent and Landing, or watch live!

Visit the Eyes on the solar System website today to try this interactive simulation! Note: JAVA is required and the simulation will open in a separate window.
