NASA has a new feature that lets you visit places where no man has gone before. You can now virtually explore exoplanets as a space tourist.

NASA added the Exoplanet Travel Bureau to its website.

Here's how it works: You can "click to explore the galaxy" and choose between six different planets beyond our solar system.

Once you've found a planet you want to visit, you can click to explore the surface. Of course, these are artist renderings of what the exoplanets look like.

No photos of them actually exist.
