Just a quick note of appreciation. I'm using your software for a student I teach who has many learning difficulties, but he is thrilled (and motivated) to be working with your software. Please continue the excellent work, and best of luck going forward.

We are a homeschool family and we have been using your site for nearly 10 months now...we think you're great!

Keep up the fantastic work you do!
Warmest Regards
Sarah, New Zealand

I have been using your programs for years now and am really glad for a chance to say how FAB they are. They are better than any other I've found for educational purposes and a fraction of the price. All the kids who have used them at my school LOVE them and I think you are a very very clever man!!

Our Solar System - education software download

Suitable for UK Key Stage 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 - USA 1st to 12th Grade (Age 5 - adult)

A journey through the solar system similar to the screen saver available on this site, except that you can learn more about each of the planets. Whereas the saver is a rolling non stop tour you can stop the action and choose which planet you wish to view and learn more about. Compressed file size - 969 KB.

Play the online version

For help with downloading and installing, click here

Click on the planet buttons to appear to make a bypass trip of that planet. Click on "Stop" to pause for a while and "Go" to continue or just choose another planet to cruise by. You can alter the speed of your "fly-by" by clicking the "Faster" or "Slower" buttons. Current speed is shown in the bottom left of the screen. Use "Stop" to also try and catch the comet which randomly crosses your screen. Clicking on "More" will give you extra information about the planet displayed in addition to the facts shown in the top left and bottom right of the screen.


Clicking on "Print" will send the current screen to your printer (beware of printing too many, it uses a lot of black ink!). Another way to print out or copy any screen in Windows '95/'98 is to click the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard. This copies a capture of the screen to your clipboard. Then open up your favourite Word Processor or Paint Program and choose Edit, then Paste. The screen shot should then appear so you can print it out. You can also resize or select an area etc.


The music is "Mars" from the Planet Suite by Holst. To turn off the music, select "Options" in the top menu and uncheck "Play Music".

Thanks for the TERRIFIC software at a great price!
Suzanne, USA

I've been a happy Olltwit user for years - I downloaded several of your programs back in '04, for my older son to use. Now it's time for my younger son to use them, and I've come back to your site to find 1) I owe you, and 2) you have more great stuff. I'm happy to pay up because I know the quality of your programs.
