Binary Universe: NASA's Eyes

cover of the RASC Journal 2017 February
I downloaded the February RASC Journal from the members area.

Good to see images by Ron Brecher and Tim Lahey. Enjoyed the piece on the search for intelligent life elsewhere in the Universe. Will need to re-read the article on Canada's birthday.

My software review column Binary Universe featured the Eyes on the Solar System application from NASA (and hinted at Eyes on the Earth and Eyes on Exoplanets).

I showed how it could be run with a simple or advanced interface. One could take predefined tours or explore randomly. I particularly enjoyed all the details revealed with old and current space probes.
