Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer

If you liked Virtual Earth, then you'll also like the World Wide Telescope that Microsoft Research has for all of us to star gaze. WorldWide Telescope is a rich Web application that brings together imagery from the best ground- and space-based observatories across the world to allow people to easily explore the night sky through their computers. WorldWide Telescope has been eagerly anticipated by the astronomical and educational communities as a compelling astronomical resource for students and lifelong learners, and as a way to make science fun for children.

You can explore the Constellations, Solar System, Hubble Images, Chandra Image, and Spitzer Images.

You can also change the view from several major world cities as well.

The views are incredible! What a great tool for educators to use in class with their students.
