World Wide Telescope

I always wanted to explore night sky. I'll never forget an August night when I watched falling stars with my father. We lay on a haystack and the million of stars seemed to be so close. I was about seven years old.

Recently I decided to buy a telescope and started talking about this with my friends. One of them told me about the World Wide Telescope project from Microsoft. I was surprised that they haven't started with a World Wide Microscope first but anyway. You can check it out at http://www.worldwidetelescope.org/. The project was recently announced at TED and it is promised to launch in spring 2008. Isn't it spring already? ;)
