Fantastic - thanks! That led me to xplanet and celestia:


both of which look rather awesome. Now to work out if the museum has any
classic hardware with enough CPU power and framebuffer ability to run

I think the SGI Indy's the only machine we've got with anything better

remote display to something with a little more horsepower. Hmmm...
