Microsofts WorldWide Telescope
WorldWide Telescope used to visualize orbit for possible new Planet Nine.
The WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a visualization environment that enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope—bringing together imagery from the world’s best ground- and space-based telescopes for the exploration of the universe. WWT blends terabytes of images, information, and stories from multiple sources into a seamless, immersive, rich media experience. Explorers of all ages will feel empowered to explore and understand the cosmos using WWT’s simple and powerful user interface.
The mission of the WorldWide Telescope is twofold:
- To aggregate scientific data from major telescopes, observatories, and institutions and make temporal and multi-spectral studies available through a single, cohesive Internet–based portal
- To stimulate interest in science among younger generations, providing a compelling base for teaching astronomy, scientific discovery, and computational science
WorldWide Telescope is dedicated to the memory of Jim Gray. It is a free, open-source resource to the astronomy and education communities with the hope that it will inspire and empower people to explore and understand the universe like never before.
From web to desktop to full-dome planetarium, WorldWide Telescope (WWT) enables you to explore the universe, bringing together imagery from the best ground- and space-based telescopes in the world and combining it with 3D navigation. With WWT, you can experience narrated guided tours from astronomers and educators featuring interesting features in the sky. You can research and import your own data and visualize it, then create a tour to share with others.
