Microsoft Worldwide Telescope - Teach Astronomy

Worldwide Telescope is a free Microsoft application that lets you travel through outer space. You can pan in and zoom in close to moons, planets, solar systems and galaxies. Images are taken from the Hubble Space Telescope and ten earth-bound telescopes.


Worldwide Telescope (WWT) also contains a number of guided tours, some of them created by famous scientists. A few examples of guided tours are: "Dark Matter", "The First Black Hole" and "Beautiful Nebulas". There are also guided tours to learn to use the software interface of WWT.

To learn more about Ms World wide Telescope, you can view the following Youtube video where science educator Roy Gould of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics intruduces the Worldwide Telescope.

“The WorldWide Telescope takes the best images from the greatest telescopes on Earth ... and in space ... and assembles them into a seamless, holistic view of the universe. This new resource will change the way we do astronomy ... the way we teach astronomy ... and, most importantly, I think it's going to change the way we see ourselves in the universe,”

Roy Gould

The Worldwide Telescope was released by Microsoft Research in 2008.
