    After creating two threads about astronomy in the Links section, I decided it was time for a third one.
    This 3D map allows you to travel between approximately 100.000 stars (some of them are labeled with their name and some additional information).

    I hope you find it as interesting as I do!

    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    You might find this interesting too, lets you see all the planets and tons of satellites and their relative orbits in real-time. You can even go into the past/future to see where things were/will be at different dates.

    Broken Link and I'm on chrome
    "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error; but who does strive to do deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

    Yeah, the OP link doesn't work for me either (on chrome). I hadn't clicked on it because I had already looked at it a couple days before he posted
