This has to be one of the cooler things I've seen on the web:
workshop.chromeexperiments.com...

You can zoom in on a number of stars near the sun or zoom out and explore the milky way galaxy. Pretty sure you have to be using Chrome for it to work.

Yep, we are tiny aren't we? Gives me something to think about when I feel like complaining
to management that "..I specifically said NO ONIONS on my cheeseburger!"

The size of everything is incomprehensible, we are millions times smaller than what we can actually think of.

Thanks for the share!

and yet, i have not been able to find the "final election results for 2012" when i type this in google search. if fact, finding sites that give me answers to my questions has become so frustrating that i hate to even do it. plenty of places to shop, though. but i digress away from the OP's topic.

OP.. I could hug you and make you a friend for life. If have never seen an Astronomy display SO effective and SO staggering in visual eye candy to explaining the Earth's place in the immediate neighborhood and the sheer scale of distances for how it really plays in a physical sense. It's really nifty eye candy regardless.....but after I zoomed to find myself looking at a big orange ball I kinda wondered WTF? ....then slowly...scrolled out from Sol and just lost my breath entirely. WOW...... Someone really outdid themselves by creating this and I'm just stunned.

You need a bucket of flags for this catch!

Amazing that it takes a thread like this to make people understand what is already common sense.........




No. Every planet does not have to have Earth like atmosphere to sustain life. Unequivocally, the answer is NO. Think about how many billions of planets there are in the Universe. Are we really that intelligent if we think all of them are lifeless or that the ones that have life only use Earth like element formula’s to survive and thrive?

That's awesome. Any fellow citizens commissioning a colony afar yet? We'll terraform it for your grandchildren! With a few science logs contained in your ship bank, and a few good tools to work with.
