Birds Eye View of Solar System



Hi,

In trying to see our solar system in action I first select the sun then request orbit around it and th I see the solar system. But as soon as I activate fast forward the view goes into the sun looking out and the world going around it.

    That does seem to be a bug and I can reproduce it.  I will get Tim to look into what is happening.

    The reason we haven't noticed this before is because of how you are zooming in to see the inner solar system.  When pinch zooming you are changing the field of view, effectively magnifying the image from your position 100 AUs away from the Sun.  What is normally done is to press the fly in and fly out buttons.  This moves you physically closer to the inner planets.  Until we get the bug fixed you can see the Solar System in action that way.

    The big question for the day is whether Tim and Bill ever sleep!

    It's simply incredible how quickly they respond (and others such as Keiron).  Thanks, guys!

    After further testing it seems this is only a problem on iOS.  Neither Mac nor Android exhibit the issue.  We are still investigating what is going on.

    We now have this fixed.  We should release it in the next week or so.
