How did you imagine your future profession when you
were 10? In my case, I decided to be an astronaut. I was
sitting under a table with a saucepan on my head.
My space table moved in space protecting the Earth from
invaders of all kind. I'd shoot the invaders with a
deadly flash-light gun. We are not kids anymore. But,
are you sure that all your daydreams have vanished completely?
Are you sure you wouldn't take a chance to look at the
Earth from a space shuttle window? Let's make a test...
Today, you can easily turn your monitor into a realistic
space shuttle window. I am not speaking of stupid space
shooters. Earth 3D Screensaver is a realistic 3D globe model.
It emulates a space orbiter window. Our planet looks exactly
as it is seen by astronauts. You see the blackness of outer
space with sparks of stars on it. You are flying around the
Earth, a huge colorful ball with a thin veil of atmosphere.
This is not like looking on a typical school globe. The view
on the Earth from your monitor is so real. It's so easy to
When finished being nostalgic, you can use the interactive
mode. Instead of moving by a randomly selected orbit, you can
control the globe. Use your arrow keys to rotate the globe.
Earth 3D Screensaver allows you to turn on additional objects
in the options. You can see airplanes, and labelled large
cities and territories. The most exciting type of objects
available are the 3D models of the most well known world objects.
For example, you can see the Statue of Liberty in New York,
the pyramids in Egypt or Kremlin in Moscow. It's a very
entertaining mode and it's just plain fun.
