Milky Way Project

December 8, 2010

Yesterday saw the launch of the new Zooniverse site – The Milkway Project. This time you are invited to identify bubbles, star clusters, galaxies and ghostly red ‘fuzzy’ objects within the infrared data from the Spitzer Space Telescope imagery.

Worldwide Telescope

September 23, 2008

TOTD has always had a secret desire to own a telescope. Unfortunately cost has always prevented it. Now, however, you can have a virtual telescope on your computer.

Microsoft’s Worldwide Telescope uses imagery from the best ground and space-based telescopes to allow you to seemlessly explore the universe.

This truly is a fascinating application, it’s easy to get lost in time and space.
