Scale of space.

This is a JavaScript\Leaflet JS web-based application that visualizes our solar system scaled down to fit within a portion of the metro area and the area immediately surrounding BU campus (outlined in BU purple).  Various facts about planetary bodies and how long light from the sun takes to reach each are displayed upon planet selection.  The scaled speed of light is visualized as a yellow ray emanating from the sun and updated in real-time.
