100,000 Stars
100,000 Stars is a Google Chrome Experiment that uses real data combined with WebGL to plot the position of over one hundred thousand stars close to the Sun.
100,000 Stars is a Google Chrome Experiment that uses real data derived from multiple star catalogs to plot the position of 119,617 nearby stars. Users may zoom from inside the solar system out to the Milky Way galaxy. Eighty-seven stars are clickable, providing detailed information about each star, and an automated tour provides a guided overview of the entire visualization. The site uses several advanced HTML5 features that highlight the capabilities of the Google Chrome browser, including WebGL, CSS3D, and Web Audio.

The star data comes from several sources, including the Gliese/JahreiƟ Catalog, the Yale Bright Star Catalog, and the ESA's Hipparcos Catalog.

Music was provided by Sam Hulick, who video game fans may recognize as a composer for the popular space adventure series, Mass Effect.
