Playing Space: Interactive Map Of The Milky Way Galaxy

April 4, 2013


Note: No screencap does the thing justice, you're gonna just have go to the website and click around playing space ranger on your own. Clicking the 'Take a Tour' button in the upper left corner is a good start though.

100,000 Stars is a website with a 3-D interactive map of the Milky Way Galaxy you can zoom in and out of to explore our little neck of the universe. Fun fact: did you know that Voyager 1, the furthest-from-earth man-made object, is only a scant 17-light hours away? That's not very far in the grand scheme of things, but still way further than I could swim without cramping up and drowning. Now get out there and claim yourself a star! Just a heads up though: I got like four bought for me as birthday presents when I was a kid so those ones are off limits.

Thanks to PORKINS, who tried to claim the whole galaxy WHICH IS AGAINST THE RULES.

    Inaccurate but impressive. Does this have anything to do with the map NASA is putting together of our galaxy?

    I think the more amazing thing about that site is that it has all been done in HTML5 CSS3. If you know programming, you know that's pretty damn amazing.
