maybe without eardrums....

Can anyone play the video - keeps timing out.

The Chandra X-ray observatory is celebrating 20 years in space this year, and oh, the things it has seen. Belinda Wilkes, who directs the telescopes operation, takes you on a dizzying visual tour of Chandra's universe.

Not for here but recommended to be viewed on "the biggest screen you can" - The Curiosity Traverse Map:
Description: 1.8 billion pixels
09x HiRISE DTM's
10x CTX
02x HRSC

Apart from the pixel count, :dunno:
