A True Perspective

Well, this might make you laugh, but also shows you how big space is (and how small EVERYTHING else is!);

It just worked for me. You need to scroll it to the right (a VERY long way) to get to Pluto! If your mouse has a scroll button this will move it (but a lot slower).

If you click on the strange C (bottom right, after you have scrolled to the Sun) it will start moving by itself, but at the (scale) speed of light. Don't bother doing this for long (the comments are worth it though), as it will take around 8 minutes to get to Earth, and there is a lot more further out, so you could be there for quite a while waiting (296.2 minutes) to get to Pluto!

Possibly from everybody trying to see how far it feels to Pluto. It may come back up.

It is working again (well, for now, at least).
