I ran into a bit of news today that made me take a bit of notice. Microsoft has launched a new site Worldwide Telescope. I’m downloading the software as I write this, so I will give a more in depth look later. The software is supposed to be a virtual telescope with access to images from all over the world and from space. Terrabytes of data are supposed to be available.
For me, a one stop shop of various space images is just what I am looking for. If this even gives half of what the press release states, I will be interested.
I’ll keep you posted as I use the software.
