Despite sounding like the title of a game, it has nothing to do with the gaming world. Asteroid Data Hunter is a NASA program thanks to which you'll have the chance to become an asteroid hunter and save mankind from a catastrophic impact if you had to.

How does it work?

Although the installation follows the usual process of the majority of software, this program doesn't come along with a desktop client of its own, but runs in your default browser. There you'll be able to check out plenty of information about the celestial bodies detected.

Help to save the Earth.

But the main objective of this software is that with your PC's processing power, you join millions of users to identify potentially dangerous asteroids that could crash into the Earth and generate a huge catastrophe.

As a reward, you can give your name to one of these rocky bodies that travel around our Solar System and be remembered forever.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Requires Windows 7.1 or above.
  • Requires a JAR compatible compressor.
  • Requires the use of Java that's installed with the application.
