    This gave me a deep respect for Galileo and Tombaugh. Eris would have been fine (less than 6,771 more maps). But in any case, well done.

    Good thing they let us scroll faster than the speed of light. Anyone else find that button? (bottom right hand corner)
    Good lord! Light is slow.
    5 ½ hours to Pluto? Ain't nobody got that much spare time for scrolling.

    The Moody Blues were right, thinking is the best way to travel.

    (or the buttons along the top. Nice warp-driveish way to get around the universe. :smile: )

    That is interesting to watch but it will have to wait for another time. :smile:

    How come it took so long? Shouldn't have time dilation made it go faster! :biggrin:

    This map would be better if vertical (my computer can not easily scroll sideways).
    This map would be better if smaller (no point wasting time scrolling empty space).

    You can use the planet buttons on top to scroll to them.

    I believe that's the whole idea.

    But it does show there's too much space in space. Something is wrong with the universe.

    I kind of agree, as I've heard similar comments about atoms.

    There's just too much missing "solid" stuff, both above and below our 3D planes of perception.

    hmmm...........

    Take a look at Venus one of those times around sunset when it's near its max angular separation from the Sun, and try to imagine the actual distance between that tiny speck and its star. How in the world did the Solar system get so empty anyway?
