Tour the Cosmos with 100,000 Stars

The newest Google Chrome Experiment, 100,000 Stars, combines web technologies to serve up a 3D star map you can manually zoom about or sit back and enjoy a star tour.

From the automated tour that explores the Milky Way with an ever increasing scale to manually moving about the cloud of stars using the zoom and pan feature, the interactive map makes it easy to explore the 100,000 closest stars to our Sun in style. Hit up the link to take it for a spin.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
