360-Degree, Panoramic, Moving View of Sistine Chapel

I don't even know what this is called.  (Techies weigh in here.)  It's sort of an online, high-res, movable, 360-degree, clickable image of the Sistine Chapel.  Check it out.  Wait for it to load and then drag your mouse to where you want to go and zoom in.  Sometimes I feel like I'm 100 years old and still amazed at the web.  Anyway it's here.
