The Invisible Universe

The Invisible Universe


See the hidden colors of the night sky with this app by astronomer Joshua Peek and Xperia Studio. For the first time, you can look through your phone and view the heavens in all their multi-hued glory: X-ray, ultraviolet, infrared wavelengths, and more.

Over the last decades astronomers have peered past the starlight and recorded a cacophony of beautiful structures filling our Galaxy. Some are the remains of the explosive deaths of stars. Some are the building blocks of planets. Some feed the massive black hole at our Galaxy's center. Many are still a complete mystery. The Invisible Universe app is loaded with full-sky images of the galaxy few ever see, and uses your GPS position and device orientation to reveal the invisible wherever you look.

beautiful! thank you

Very cool app, with two big problems -- (1) no app2sd support, and an app this big needs that, and (2) currently only 1 of the 5 wavelength options works. Add the first and fix the second, and this would be a great app.

cool but why does only the first option work? the rest are blank.

Was expecting a telescope's perspective of our universe in differing wavelengths of light but the view reminds me of those daggy special effects seen in sci-fi telly shows from the 1980's.

Good effort It does exactly what they say it does. The commenters who thinks its supposed to turn your camera into a magical astronomy gadget are all retards. Five stars.
