Kepler-90 planetary system tour

This awesome video made by Rob Simpson shows a virtual fly-through of the Kepler-90 (previously KOI 351) planetary system, which contains seven planets, one of which was discovered by Planet Hunters users (for more details read this previous blog post). There is still some debate as to who should be credited with the discovery, as another team of scientists announced their independent discovery of the same planet one day later. Perhaps joint credit is the fair solution. Read more about this debate on the Planet Hunters blog.
