Space Flight Simulator Lite

Space Flight Simulator Lite


Realistic 3D space travel simulator and planetarium.

IMPORTANT: This app is a simulator rather than a game, that's why it is under the category Apps:Education and not under Games:Action. Don't download this app if you are looking for some fast-paced action game.

In this app you will find:
- All major planets and moons in the Solar System, with their accurate keplerian orbits:
* Sun
* Mercury
* Venus
* Earth and Moon
* Mars and its moons Phobos and Deimos
* Jupiter and its major moons: Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto
* Saturn and its major moons: Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan, Hyperion and Iapetus
* Uranus and its major moons: Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania and Oberon
* Neptune and Triton
- Dwarf planets and its major moons:
* Ceres
* Pluto and its moons:Charon, Nix and Hydra
* Haumea and its moons: Namaka and Hi'iaka
* Makemake
* Eris and its moon Dysnomia\
- Asteroid field and Trojan asteroids
- Several extrasolar systems:
* Alpha Centauri
* Proxima Centauri
* Barnard's Star
* Sirius
* Epsilon Eridani
- Realistic space travel from Earth to the Moon and Mars
- Realistic calculation of fuel requirements using Tsiolkovsky Rocket equation
- Timeslider to accelerate/decelerate time. You'll also be able to run time backwards
- NEW! Free flight mode: take control of your spaceship with a limited amount of fuel. Experience the effect of gravity on your trajectories.

Get the full version and you'll get:
- Improved graphics for planets, moons and stars
- Many more extrasolar systems
- Realistic orbits from any planet to any other planet and moon
- Interstellar travel!
- Relativistic effects of time dilation, length contraction and relativistic doppler shift during interstellar flights

NOTE: If you cannot run this app due to insufficient heap memory, you can try to change the heap size configuration of your device with applications like this one (requires root):

Nice concept except Needs to be bit more user friendly, I know the guy who made this may not care but the reason nearly half of the people thumbs down one star vote is probably due to usability I found for myself that due to not being able to access many functions + the interface turned me off in 5 mins of using it, I seen no reason to continue watching the same pretty picture with only an icon of the Galaxy, the moon, some tiny information and a scale of distance all the while a line with my flight path and a tiny dot moving.
