Astronomy magazine Senior Editor Frank Reddy
"WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is an astronomy educator's dream. The seamless layering of different data sets lets everyone see the night sky in a whole new light.
"I've been involved in astronomy for decades. I've used just about every visualization tool out there. Yet moving through the sky in WWT's fluid interface gives me a better overall feel for what's where.
"Amateurs will be able to showcase their own images and share them through Astronomy
's community portal. To an educator, WWT is a powerful astronomy presentation tool -- PowerPoint for the Cosmos.
"Microsoft has big plans for this tool. This much-anticipated launch is just the beginning."
