A Map of the 'Verse. Beautifully rendered in HTML5, CSS3, jQuery and XML.

I love it it's awesome, now I can't get lost in space
Mine won't work. How do you get it to work?
Where's Miranda?
That's great. Love it.
Beautiful! While the moons are left aside - are these all the planets? Surprisingly few Chinese names.
Shiny! I wish I could have it as my desktop (then again, I wouldn't be able to work - I'd be just sitting and staring at the pretty! :)
This is very cool.

And not to be pedantic, but the explanation of Firefly in the right panel says only 11 episodes were made. I wonder if the creator of the page knows there are 3 more...
I thought all the planets were supposed to be in the same solar system. What are all those suns ?

What browser are you using?
For me it works only for a few seconds with Internet Explorer. Does work normally in Firefox though.

ETA: So Blue Sun is an actual sun (star)?

Hmm. I'm not sure I ever thought it through explicitly before, but I think I'd been assuming all the planets were orbiting a particularly exceptional sun. :)
I always thought it was Sihnon not Shinon...

Presumably the 'verse is a multiple star system - so it's a solar system with multiple stars in it.

There is a definite issue with Miranda being missing, though. I guess that this map is the official propaganda put out by the Alliance...
I place claim on the second. Always wanted my own world.
Any explanation on Miranda?
Strictly speaking the map is correct, Miranda is part of the Serenity 'Verse and not the Firefly 'Verse.
Ooh, hypnotic. I just like watching them move.

Simon, do you mean to imply that with Serenity (film), Joss introduced elements in their solar system that were non-existent in the behind-the-scenes bible used for Firefly? As in, he came up with Miranda solely for the movie and it was never known to any of the other staff of Firefly prior to the movie? I guess the idea confuses me since it's Joss' universe, he would seem to be the one guiding the existence of planets and other astral bodies and that it's all just one fictional universe (as opposed to two).
Doesn't work for me either. (Internet Explorer w/ Norton anti-virus if any of that makes a dif)
Very neat. Wouldn't be sans-moons, because I do believe Whitefall was a moon.

Pretty much, trying to make sense of the 'Verse is a head wrecker. A lot of it doesn't make any sense.

These people tried, fair play to them.

Awesome, I love it!

If it was a multiple-star universe, wouldn't the stars around the minor suns be circling those as well? :)
