SO COOL!

via biquet:

I have just discovered Celestia, which is hands-down the coolest application ever. It allows you to explore the entire known universe in four dimensions. Click on a planet, star, nebula, or galaxy, and you get its distance from your current location, apparent magnitude, and size. With a keystroke you zoom seamlessly to your target, and you can pan the camera around in any direction.

I just got lost in that program for I don't know how long. I'm going to change the message on my voicemail to say, "Sorry, I can't come to the phone until sometime next year, I'm busy exploring the galaxy." That is really amazing. I'm so glad they had a version for Mac.
