Check Out the Entire Galaxy


This is the 100,000 Stars project, here’s the description released by the developers:

100,000 Stars is an interactive visualization of the stellar neighborhood created for the Google Chrome web browser. It shows the real location of over 100,000 nearby stars. Zooming in reveals 87 individually identified stars and our solar system. The galaxy view is an artist’s rendition.

Smoke a joint and bounce around space checking out our neighbors.

Try it and blow your mind at workshop.chromeexperiments.com.

Astounding.  I suggest taking a tour.  If you like it you should check out www.lsst.org  where a Large Synoptic Survey Telescope  will produce an unprecedented wide-field astronomical survey of our universe using an 8.4-meter ground-based telescope that will be free and open to the public.

I'd hate to be the snob here, but 100,000 stars is just a tiny fraction of the billions of stars in the Milky Way.

Big deal, I can do that with a hammer and a box of Fruity Pebbles.
