Travel among the stars — without leaving home.

Built by Michael Chang and the Data Arts Team at Google, 100,000 Stars is an "interactive visualization of the stellar neighborhood," which basically means you can mess around in space and feel like you're really there. Showing the location of 119,617 nearby stars, you can zoom right in, from the whole Milky Way, to our local star system, and solar system. Clicking on a star will give you more info about it, and there's also a really interesting interactive tour to get you started.

Note: This works best if you have Chrome.
