Touring the Milky Way now is as easy as clicking a button with NASA's new zoomable, 360-degree mosaic presented Thursday at the TED 2014 Conference in Vancouver, Canada.

The star-studded panorama of our galaxy is constructed from more than 2 million infrared snapshots taken over the past 10 years by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

This is magnificent! I definitely recommend trying out the different filters on the Aladin Viewer (under the 'Manage layers' tab); particularly the 'Mellinger colored'.

Peace Out!
Jonny!
