A friend of mine linked me to this. I found it pretty spectacular. I think others might appreciate seeing it too!

100,000 Stars (http://workshop.chromeexperiments.com/stars/)

*edit* You can click and move the mouse to pan the view at the different levels. The bar at the side is basically the zoom bar.

Wow, that is pretty awesome! I can never find that kind of stuff on my own when I'm looking for it... This would have been soooo useful when I was running a GURPS sci-fi campaign with my friends three months ago!

Nice find by your friend!
