Microsoft’s new TIME TRAVELING device.

This is breathtaking and brilliant. A powerful but FREE software has been developed by Microsoft that empowers one to explore the chartered universe – in a way similar to how google maps lets you explore planet earth – and much more.

Oh, did I say it was a time traveling device? Technically it does allow you to explore time in the universe, as the images we have from the farthest reaches of the universe represent these areas as they were millions of years ago, as that’s how long it takes for their light to reach us.

worldwidetelescope.org is the official site, which currently only has a couple of “reactions to worldwidetelescope” videos.
