I just downloaded this and played around a little- very slick!

From the AP:

WorldWide Telescope, developed by Microsoft's research arm, knits together images from the Hubble Space Telescope, the Chandra X-Ray Observatory Center, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and others.

Computer users can browse through the galaxy on their own or take guided tours of different outer-space destinations developed by astronomers and academics.

The site lets users choose from a number of different telescopes and switch between different light wavelengths.

I just discovered this as well and was getting ready to start a new thread on it when I saw yours. It's very nice indeed. Fantastic for the beginner and entertaining for the seasoned veteran as well. grin
