Exploring the wonders of creation used to involve buying an expensive telescope, driving to some remote location at 3 am in order to see the stars. Microsoft just made stargazing much more accessible with their world wide telescope project. You can download it or use the web application to get up close and personal with stars, planets, nebulae and the occasional unknown object.
