This interactive visualization shows how close asteroids frequently come to Earth. (Don’t worry, the dots aren’t to scale.)
Hover over this Tableau visualization to explore the history of human space flight. You can see how frequently flights bring staff to the International Space Station (ISS), and click a small arrow in the bottom right for more graphics.
Where is the ISS now? This webpage shows its current location and can animate its future path around the world.
