Website / program speed of light simulation

  1. Mar 8, 2013 #1
    I was wondering if anyone knows of such a website or program whereby I can type a speed I would like to travel, and it will allow me to travel around the earth or through the universe at that speed?

    Nothing like a flight simulator but just something that will allow me to control the speed the camera travels at

    There's a nice program called Celestia I used to use on my iBook running OS X.

    Not sure if there's a version for another OS, or even whether it's been kept up to date for OS X. But it has nice graphics and let's you travel out of Earth at any speed, even high multiples of c.

    EDIT: I was pipped by a Walrus. :grumpy: Goo goo ga joob. :biggrin:
