SkyServer Galaxy Explorer

Author: Tamas Szalay
Date: Last updated September 2007

This tool enables an interactive, video game-like fly through of the 3D galaxy distribution in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. This tool runs under Windows, requires DirectX8.0 or higher, and a graphics card supporting 3D. (Note: Windows XP and later have DirectX installed by default, so you should only need to download DirectX if you have an older Wiindows OS)
