Microsoft Launches WorldWide Telescope at TED

leave a comment »

Microsoft has launched WorldWide Telescope service at TED. On the website they describe:

“The WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a rich visualization environment that functions as a virtual telescope, bringing together imagery from the best ground and space telescopes in the world for a seamless, guided exploration of the universe.

WorldWide Telescope, created with Microsoft’s high-performance Visual Experience Engine™, enables seamless panning and zooming across the night sky blending terabytes of images, data, and stories from multiple sources over the Internet into a media-rich, immersive experience”

It is still in private alpha release so not open to public yet, but I believe it would be an awesome experience to see such a piece of software. I am really looking forward to it. And yes this is what made Scoble cry and he explains the reasons for it on his blog now, and I seem to agree with him.
