Microsoft’s WorldWide Telescope is Amazing

In the following video, science educator Roy Gould and Microsoft’s Curtis Wong give an astonishing sneak preview of Microsoft’s new WorldWide Telescope — a technology that combines feeds from satellites and telescopes all over the world and the heavens, and weaves them together holistically to build a comprehensive view of our universe.

  1. The only thing that disappoints me about this is that it works only on Windows at this point. Why not bring this to the masses like Google Earth?

  2. Yes, GoogleEarth has the same thing under a little button, but they don't tell like "oh my god, we are such genious bringing that holy thing to the world" like microsoft here in the video. *shuggle*

  3. I prefer Celestia. Then slap on some galaxy / nebula addons from Celestia Motherlode for the extra bling bling, and you have a free / open-source multiplatform application for universe exploration.

    MS is being pathetic as usual when it comes to targetting various platforms.
