Kepler's Exoplanet Candidates

Space is one of those hard to reach and unexplainable places with forces of nature that astound us. There are millions of possibilities and questions about the phenomenon that occurs in space. One of those phenomenon is being explored by Exo,  a visualization tool for exploring the nearly 2,300 exoplanet candidates that have been so far identified by NASA's Kepler mission. What looks like hundred of little dots spiraling around each other are really planets moving about outside our own solar system.


This video shows a prototype of Exo running in a spacial, gestural environment and was created with the ingenious folks at Oblong.
