What is WorldWide Telescope?
WorldWide Telescope is a software program from Microsoft that will take the user close to the skies. It is a type of visualization software that will allow the user to view stunning images from space-based telescopes such as the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as Earth-based telescopes.
The computer will be turned into a virtual telescope that will enable the user to view space and navigate through space. The user can choose what mode of view to use. There are 5 views that the user can choose from: Sky, Earth, Solar System, Planets and Panoramas.
From the Sky view mode, users can explore the skies, view the sun, moon and visible planets, in their exact positions. For Earth view, a 3D image of the Earth can be viewed; and for Solar System, the user can view all visible objects in the Solar System, from the Sun all the way to Pluto.
For Planets, there are currently 8 celestial bodies that can be viewed in 3D mode, including Venus, Jupiter and its moons, and Earth’s moon.
The software can be downloaded and installed on a Windows PC, or a Web-based application can also be used.
