FAVORITE WEBSITE OF THE DAY: CELESTIA
I’m kinda double-dipping here because this is not just my favorite website of the day, it’s one of my favorite programs to use on the computer.
Just addictive as well as being fun and educational. How often does that happen?!
I’m speaking of a mad open-source astronomy project called Celestia.
As well as here andhere!
It’s like having an endlessly configurable planetarium on your computer. The idea of creating simulations of voyages through the stars, and sampling amazing voyages and scripts that other users create… well all that functionality makes Celestia pretty close to great.
You can get download links for the program and user created voyages/scripts from the link above. Okay need to go do some Celesting now!
(Yes. it’s geeky but it’s also pretty… [wait for it]…stellar! You see what I did there? :))
