Scoble recently had a wee cry about a new Microsoft Research project called World Wide Telescope that he saw prior to it being announced.
Well, today I got a chance to check it out at our TechFest (where Research show off all the stuff they do) … and I have to say it is one very cool application. Mind blowing … and for the right person … is likely to make them very happy … and possibly cry (if they were alone and didn’t want to lose face). I kinda like space and astronomy … so it was very interesting indeed.
You can check it out here: http://www.worldwidetelescope.org/
PS: you cant download it .. yet … but soon you will be able to.
