Google Maps Caters To Astronomy Lovers With Hyperspace Animation

The reality is still far away from wishes, but now Google gives us a chance to have a 'hyperspace' journey on our own. 

Floating amongst stars in outer space is a dreamy desire that every human has wished to fulfill since his childhood. When looking at the night sky, we find out the infinite beauty of the Milky Way, feel it so close but hardly know how long it will take to travel from the Earth to stars, at least planets in the mutual Solar System. The reality is still far away from wishes, but now Google gives us a chance to have a space journey on our own.

The reality is still far away, but now Google gives us a chance to have a space journey on our own.

To cater to our curious mind, the company has already introduced a feature called “Hyperdrive” in Google Maps. In short, the feature will let us visit such distant worlds and Solar System-based places thanks to its “hyperspace travel” capabilities. For instance, we’re now able to pay a visit to the International Space Station, different terrestrial planets, and a reservoir of Saturn’s moons as well. As noticed, Google Maps quietly updates its desktop version with this addition, in which people can switch between planets and play hyperspace animation.

Sincerely speaking, this virtual system actually seems to be the likes of a hyperdrive spacecraft for those who love astronomy. Here’re some steps to use Hyperdrive and decode the Solar System yourself.

  1. Open your computer, then Google Maps.
  2. Make sure that it’s ready for use. Start zooming out as far as possible in two ways: scrolling back the mouse wheel, or tapping on the "-" symbol at the bottom of the interface.
  3. You’ll see the ‘Menu’ at the top corner > open it then click on "Satellite" view.
  4. To access to Space View, zoom out once more (Google Maps also list of number of available locations here)
  5. Now you can watch these hyperspace animations.

Let's head to Google Maps India and give it a try. Have fun!
