Hitchhiker 2000 is an astronomical simulation and visualization program. It displays the solar system in a window on your computer; you manipulate the field of view using the mouse. You can rotate a schene, zoom in and out, or view the scene from any angle. You can also control what objects are seen on the screen. You can also create an MPEG-formatted movie based on your current scene.
