See the world as a space operator sees it–FREE!

Microsoft Research released an updated version of the WorldWide Telescope software a few days ago.  It’s a Google Sky-type application that’s downloadable to your Windows machine.  And it’s free.

If you want to see the Earth and space as a space operator sees it, then spend lots of time with this application.  I will admit the controls aren’t quite as intuitive as Google’s, but once you learn to focus on a planet or other areas of space, it’s fun.  I hope they eventually make a Windows Phone application with this.  Then the universe would be in my pocket.

Anyway, here’s the link.  I’m also adding it to the “Fun Ways to Learn Space Operations” column on the right.  If you’re an Apple fan, it appears you’re out of luck.
