NASA has released a Web application which allows users to "explore the cosmos" from their own computers. Using video game technology, the app is designed to be "a 3-D environment full of real NASA mission data," according to the "Eyes on the Solar System" Web page.

As well as providing links to download the application and relevant plug-ins, the NASA page provides users with an introduction and tutorials to navigate the application.
