Interesting application leveraging very big data, as you can zoom in to check out pretty detailed landscape on a few nearby planets and satellites. It would be even better if it allowed you to simulate space travel. At a speed 32 million times faster than the speed of light, it would take you 4 seconds to reach the closest star (Alpha Centauri): that's how fast you need to travel to see the stars really moving in the sky. By contrast, space travel at just the speed of light would make stars…Continue

Many of these methods are described in Wikipedia. Many are also described on Data Science Central, see for instance…Continue
