Sign in to queue

Description

I had to stop by and try on the 3D glasses at the WWT booth during this years Faculty Research Summit. If you think the WWT is cool- just wait till you see it in 3D.

WorldWide Telescope (WWT) enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope, bringing together imagery from the best ground and space-based telescopes in the world. Experience narrated guided tours from astronomers and educators featuring interesting places in the sky.
A web-based version of WorldWide Telescope is also now available for preview. This version enables seamless, guided explorations of the universe from within a web browser on PC and Intel Mac OS X by using the power of Microsoft Silverlight 2.0.

    I really wish the WWT team could get more better imagery from Bing's Virtual Earth team. I can't fathom how difficult it could be. I thought an integration would be pretty obvious.
