Eyes on the Solar System" is a 3-D environment full of real NASA mission data. Explore the cosmos from your computer. Hop on an asteroid. Fly with NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft. See the entire solar system moving in real time. It's up to you. You control space and time.

I don't know, she looks a little like Morticia Addams or, maybe a feminine Carl Sagan . . ?

Uh, I'm just not seeing the Carl Sagan thing Gene! :lol:
Despite all that, I still have not come across any amateur astronomer remotely close.
