Discounted from its regular price of $4.99, Brian Cox’s Wonders of the Universe takes those interested in learning about the cosmos – from the smallest particles, past the moons and planets of our Solar System, out through the Oort Cloud to the Milky Way, past the local stars, and out to distant galaxies – before arriving, finally, at the edge of the known Universe.

On the way, you will encounter the likes of seething Red Giants, beautiful Nebulae, pulsing Neutron stars and even confront a daunting vision of a Black Hole sucking down a hapless star – all rendered in spectacular 3D.

9-Wonders-App-Pulsar-Star

And, this weekend, it’s available for 50%-off.

Professor Brian Cox provides mind-expanding insight in over 200 interactive articles pinned to the stars, planets, galaxies and other wonders modelled in extraordinary 3D, written in his accessible style and accompanied by two and a half hours of video from the BBC TV series “Wonders of the Solar System” and “Wonders of the Universe.”

Made in partnership with BBC, the space exploration app includes dozens of 3D interactive models, and more than one hundred infographics, and images, of the space objects that surround us. The useful educational resource uses information supplied by astronomy experts, such as; NASA, and other space researchers in this field, providing a wealth of new knowledge to those who may be studying the subject.

Having downloaded and used the app myself, I can tell you that this is one you definitely shouldn’t miss – if you happen to have just the slightest interest in learning what’s really out there. To be honest, nothing else even comes close.

Hold the universe in your hands, for $2.99.
