Microsoft WorldWide Telescope 3.0.73 Beta

O. James Samson - March 30, 2012

The WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a Web 2.0 visualization software environment that enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope bringing together imagery from the best ground and space-based telescopes in the world for a seamless exploration of the universe. The program is created with the Microsoft high performance Visual Experience Engine and allows seamless panning and zooming around the night sky, planets, and image environments. It enables you to view the sky from multiple wavelenghts. Seamlessly pan and zoom from aerial views of the Moon and selected planets, as well as see their precise positions in the sky from any location on Earth and any time in the past or future with the Microsoft Visual Experience Engine.

You can see the x-ray view of the sky and zoom into bright radiation clouds and then crossfade into the visible light view and discover the cloud remnants of a supernova explosion from a thousand years ago. With Microsoft WorldWide Telescope, you can also switch to the Hydrogen Alpha view to see the distribution and illumination of massive primordial hydrogen cloud structures lit up by the high energy radiation coming from nearby stars in the Milky Way. There are different ways to reveal the hidden structures in the universe with the WorldWide Telescope beside the two mentioned here.
