    Lightbulb 100,000 stars

    ........ nice demo of modern browser tech, does not use Flash.

    100,000 Stars

    "Explore the stellar neighborhood with your browser"

    "The experiment makes use of Google Chrome’s support for WebGL, CSS3D,
    and Web Audio."

    "Visualizing the exact location of every star in the galaxy is a
    problem of, well, galactic proportions. With over 200 billion stars,
    capturing every detail of the Milky Way currently defies scientists
    and laptops alike. However, using imagery and data from a range of
    sources, including NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA), we were
    recently able to take one small step in that direction by plotting the
    location of the stars closest to our sun.

    The result is a new Chrome Experiment called 100,000 Stars that
    visualizes the stellar neighborhood. Using your mouse or trackpad, you
    can zoom in and out to explore our galaxy. Zooming in reveals the
    names of the most prominent stars close to our sun – click each name
    to learn more about it and see a digital rendition."
