100,000 Stars comes from the Google Data Arts Team and makes use of WebGL, CSS3D, and Web Audio. This is designed to work with the Chrome browser. All the stars depicted in this web app are contained in the same small corner of the Milky Way Galaxy that we are. 100,000 stars might sound like a lot, but there are a few hundred billion of them in just our galaxy.
Wow. This is just incredible. I have a feeling that I will be spending a lot of time on this site: http://workshop.chro...ents.com/stars/
I think this maybe should have been posted in the Astronomy section, but as it is actually a way for us - sitting at home on computers - to explore a part of the universe, I thought it suitable for the space exploration section.
