    INFO SCIENCE: I hope you all are familiar with Celestia. It's a great way to explore space on your PC. The amazing part about Celestia is that you're not just limited to our exploring our solar system, but you can actually travel to over 100,000 other stars systems too. Here's a sample of how photo-realistic its real-time rendering actually is:







    How is this news? It's not! Haha! Celestia has been around for a while. What is news however is their great new sister site, The Celestia Motherlode. This site is a (long overdue) central repository for a number of cool plug-ins that enhance or completely change Celestia. Not only can you download improved textures for your planets, new asteroids to put in orbit, and new clouds for Jupiter, but you can also throw in fictional fun stuff too, like, say, the DEATH STAR. w_(O_O)_t!
