ABOUT

Cosmic Atlas was built by two dreamers, space nerds, and longtime friends Dan and Max. What started as Dan’s passion project evolved into something much bigger and five years later, we’re excited to share our work with the world. We hope you enjoy using the app and we look forward to releasing more features that inspire your inner explorer and celebrate the incredible work of space research programs around the world.
