If you are a space watcher, if you like spending nights with your nose up while watching the Moon and the stars then you have to try this amazing software called Microsoft WorldWide Telescope. WWT is a web based software which will take you into the space thanks to its amazing technology and its hundreds of pictures coming from the best ground and space-based telescopes in the world including the famous Hubble Space Telescope, the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), and the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS). This freeware software takes also advantage of a lot of narrated guided tours by astronomers and educators coming from the most famous observatories and planetariums. With Microsoft WorldWide Telescope you will be able to watch documentaries about the Milky Way Galaxy, the past of our galaxy, how stars were born, the explosion of a Supernova from a thousand years ago, the distribution and illumination of primordial hydrogen cloud structures and much more. All this with the help of powerful tools which, in any moment, will let you: zoom-in, zoom-out, pause the documentary, have multiple wavelengths of the sky, have aerial views of planets and their precise positions in the sky from any location on Earth etc. WWT is a wonderful free application using the powerful technology provided by Microsoft and called Microsoft® high performance Visual Experience Engine™ which condensates thousands of gigabytes of images, information, and stories from multiple sources over the Internet.
