    I'm waiting for you smart astronomers to turn that data into a nice model for me.

    Hmmm, only 1.2 and 2.3 Tbytes. On my 56K modem how long will that take. Rough guess: about the same time it took the light from the stars to get here :roll:

    Beskeptical, Celestia has V2 of the survey as an option along with some other cool data plots. It probably won't be long before someone converts this too. Assuming of course that soon PC's will handle that much data easily....
