Explore the Cosmos from your PC

Are you looking for a new science resource or are you a budding astronomer? Then this is the site for you.

World Wide Telescope

Microsoft and NASA have teamed up to create what they say is the largest seamless, spherical map ever made of the night sky, as well as a true-color, high resolution map of Mars that users can explore in 3D. The site allows for seamless panning and zooming across the night sky blending terabytes of images, data, and stories from multiple sources over the Internet into a single immersive experience.
