As more schools in China build WorldWide Telescope (WWT) Digital Domes, an alliance among the planetariums helps share experiences and resources – including courses that have already taught more than 2,000 students.
Thanks to Microsoft Research’s WorldWide Telescope (WWT), anyone can see the night sky in all its glory. Last fall, Microsoft Research helped bring the excitement of astronomy to Asian schoolchildren with the installation of a WWT-driven planetarium at the Shixinlu primary school in China and family events at Miraikan, Japan’s national science museum in Tokyo.
For five years, WorldWide Telescope has inspired students and astronomy enthusiasts with its interactive educational content and detailed perspective of the heavens. The newest version comes with powerful new features and includes access to new data sets that make planets and other solar system bodies look better than ever.
