The rings of Earth

J-Track 3D is a NASA Java applet representing real-time tracking of 500 satellites. Sweet.

Imagine a Java applet that shows hundreds of satellites in their actual real-time orbital positions around the earth -- in 3D. Imagine selecting specific satellites to track from a menu of over five hundred. Imagine accelerating the time frame by 1000x with a refresh rate of one-quarter second. Zoom in and out, then grab it with your cursor and flip the whole scene to view it from any angle.
