Wouldn’t be awesome if you could get images from best ground and space telescopes in the world directly on your computer? Well guess what? You can!
WorldWide Telescope lets you do exactly that. They even offer you two ways to do it! You can use their web based client, or you can download the Windows client.
What is a WorldWide Telescope? – There is a whole section devoted to answering just this question. Check it out to find what exactly it is!
Take a Tour – that’s right you can take guided video tours, and you can do it one of two ways. If you downloaded the client you can access it from within the client and take a guided and interactive tour where you’ll explore what you see. The other option is to select a tour from the list and then watch the tour. I think that this feature is excellent in allowing you to see if the Windows client is really something you want to download.
The benefits of downloading the Windows client is that you can create your own tours, and got on interactive tours where you are free to explore at your own pace in your own direction at any time.
This is a fun way at looking at the galaxy, check it out today!
