Near Earth Asteroids

Feeling a little too calm, cool, and collected? How about we turn that anxiety dial up to 11 with a quick glimpse at the nearly 10,000 “Near Earth Asteroids” within our galaxy. Built with real data (thanks NASA), a scale model, and the usual smattering of web tech, this visualizer lives at MMGM’s Meteorite gallery. The interface allows gestural exploration and a guided tour of the galaxy. Don’t worry, we’re probably going to dodge all of those asteroids.
