Science porn

Who says science cannot be made as interesting, entertaining and plain fun?

When you have (at least) half an hour to waste, check out the fantastic Solar System Scope [via @Laura_Scott]: an interactive display of our Solar System (with nine planets, poor Pluto still has some fans) where you can move around like in your backyard, not just in space, but in time as well. Being done in Flash, this is one great app missing from my iPad (and it just cries for a touch interface), but loads of fun nonetheless!

BTW, the still frame above represent the three planets (Saturn, Jupiter and Earth) alignment that is maybe preliminary to the big 2012 one, if you believe such crap.
