Growing up NASA, the space shuttle and exploring space captivated me and my friends. I mean who doesn’t find exploring the cosmos exciting? Google shares my wonder and at Chrome Experiments. It is simply an interactive 3D map of 100,000 of our closest stars. Clicking on a star will zoom in, give you info about that star. It is a wonderful experience and a great way to kind of show exactly how small we really are out there. The etherial music is soothing and really adds to the whole site. Check it out here and get exploring!
