An interactive 3D visualization of the stellar neighborhood, including over 100,000 nearby stars. Created for Google Chrome, works great in Safari on Mac.

It’s tuesday. It’s time to be tired of a new week already. Let’s re-jump-start this thing with a bang (science-space pun), and go to another web experiment that makes you wonder at the power of the web. It’s a 3D visualization of our star neighborhood, and you can fly around in it.
I just spent a good number of minutes trying to find alien life in it. Can’t publicly announce anything yet.
Go there now and have some fun! Or not. You could always get back to work, I suppose.
