Seeing stars: Traverse Solar System at speed of light (VIDEO)

Ever imagined what it would be like to traverse the Solar System at the speed of light? A newly-released animated video attempts to recreate the out-of-this-world experience.

The ultimate ride begins on the surface of the sun, hurling you outwards at 186,000 miles per second (300,000kps), past the orbiting planets, the asteroid belt, until finally the sun appears as a faint glimmer among a sea of other stars.
