does it make you cry?

This is the sort of software Microsoft should be releasing. The seamless integration, very similar to what Google Earth did for looking around our little blue-green planet, makes it that much more accessible. I’ve tried downloading those huge images from Hubble and never had a computer with enough memory to open one. Making those high resolutions accessible opens up worlds (excuse the pun) to everyone from any walk of life… not just a handful of super computers around the world.

I can’t wait to give this thing a spin, and I only wish Carl Sagan or Douglas Adams were still around to narrate tours around the universe.
