If you haven't had the opportunity to play with NASA JPL's Eyes on the Solar System yet, then you are missing out. 

What is it? Its a NASA-built in-your-browser software that emulates our solar system and the majority of the NASA missions currently deployed in it. Want to see the Cassini probe orbit Saturn? No Problem. Want to follow the International Space Station in real time as it orbits the Earth? Easy as pie. Want to go back in time and watch Voyager 1 pass Jupiter? Can do. Go into the past, the future, or take the Grand Tour. 

We just forwarded 5 weeks into the future to watch a simulation of the Mars Science Laboratory "Curiosity" landing on Mars. It was very cool. 

Just one more way that NASA is engaging the public. We recommend you give this a shot.
