    How big is it?
    Very big, If i was to quantify its bigness I'd be doing it a disservice! Bigly big, the vastly big bigness of the universe.

    Apparently a cool dude has traveled around the globe and taken 37000 photos of the night sky, combined them into a 360° panorama. Then to top it off, uploaded it to the internet.

    Feel free to share videos/images/interviews of other space stuff. Or you can just sit there with your jaw on the floor like you should after seeing that ^

    (Try not to overdo the p2 space meme, It's really not that great)

    Yep, it looks quite vast, easy to get lost. I think I'll stay on earth after all

    You'd think nasa would have a better website than just a white background and that basic font/links.

    That reminds me of when I went into a copper-mine and they turned off the lights and it was dark...

    I'm assuming they don't have the budget or priority to hire a proper web designer.

    Well, the first picture was June 1995, I don't think it's been changed since then.
