Microsoft Worldwide Telescope

Until now we have heard about tools from Google like Google Earth by which we can explore the earth by using a simple tool. You also must be familiar with Google Moon which lets us explore the moon as well. I always get stunned by exploring the moon. Now Google Mars is also functional by which we can see what is happening in Mars.

But Microsoft has gone one step ahead and is offering Microsoft Worldwide Telescope. Microsoft Worldwide Telescope enables the computer to act as a virtual telescope. The images which we see on the telescope is taken from the best ground and space-based telescopes of the world. The telescope also shows interesting places in the sky which includes narrations from astronomers and educators.

Microsoft Worldwide Telescope can be used by two methods; one using a web client which requires Microsoft Silverlight and the other using the Windows client which can be installed like Google Earth.
