Explore all the stars that have confirmed exoplanets in 3D. (WebGL required: https://get.webgl.org/)
You can view the stars that have confirmed exoplanets with this app. The stars are drawn in 3D in the ecliptic coordinate system, with approximate relative brightness. You can drag the mouse to look around. When you hover over a star it will be highlighted and information about the star will be displayed (name, number of planets and it's ecliptic coordinates).
You are welcome to view my source code at: https://github.com/Hackbit/angularattack2017-slingshot/tree/master/slingshot
Drag the mouse to look around (hold mouse button down while dragging). Hover over a star to see information.
The app should work on most modern browsers:
I've tested it on the latest version of Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge on Windows 10
And on the latest version of Chrome and Firefox on Mac Snow Leopard
WebGL is required.
Please enable WebGL if it is not enabled.
See https://get.webgl.org/ to see if it is enabled and for help to enable it if not.
Android Mobile devices and tablets should work but the app requires you to hover over stars to see details and no specific mechanism has been built into the site to deal with touch devices so please avoid mobile devices.
Amazing idea! Yet there not much interactivity IMO.
Also, I see a little of Angular here and UX could be improved.
Overall, great job and great idea!
Your feedback to my entry would be appreciated as well.
Awesome app, nice work.
Might be cool to highlight or give quick access to a few of the more interesting stars -- Proxima Centauri, Trappist-1, etc.
Good for education
Very Cool! It'd be cool to jump to constellations and outline them.
Interesting, nice idea, good luck!
My entry is somewhat similar in that it uses WebGL.:) Your feedback on my entry is appreciated.
Nice app, please review my entry http://www.angularattack.com/entries/395-emergency-aid-assistant
Awesome! Nice animations simulating viewport in a sphere of stars :)
Let me know what you think about my entry ;)
This is a good job. Congratulations!
Pretty cool app that you guys have developed in 48 hours. I really want to appreciate your idea.!! coolest design. I will suggest you work some more on selecting fonts and add some more utility. :) Keep doing the Good work :)
It will be great if you are playing a game which is developed by me and giving feedback :)
I can't open this; 404 error. If you can fix it let me know and I'll come back to rate it properly. Seems like a cool idea so I'd love to see it working. EDIT: Hi, I have WebGL enabled and am using Chrome Version 58.0.3029.81 (64-bit), on a 2011 MacBook Air. I ended up looking at this on a newer MacBook Pro and it works fine. It's a really cool idea!! Well done.
The design is minimalist, but it does the work. I was kinda hopping I could zoom on the stars (but it's not like you have data on them to know what they look like).
It's an original project, and it works great.
I would have liked more info on the interesting stars and galaxies (for example where to find sirius, or other stars that we know of), with pointers in the sky, or some kind of highlight for interesting stars.
Like the idea. It will be good to have something like spaceship to add gamification :)
Neat concept! Looking forward to seeing future additions :)
Nice idea and well implemented! Could have been better if you were able to show more data like distance in light years etc (but i don't know whether you had such info from the exoplanet archive data or not). Nice work!
Good job on implementing a visualization of exoplanets using coordinate data. Nice work!
Nice looking program. Would be nice to be able to search for a star or constellation
