Microsoft has finally released their long-awaited World Wide Telescope software today. It uses vast amounts of data from telescopes across and above the world, allowing you to pan and zoom across the cosmos much like Google Earth lets you view our own planet.

I'd love to post a review of it, tell you about its flaws and successes, but I have a Mac, and I don't have Bootcamp. So for now I'll go the safe route and assume it simply has huge software security issues, and running it will triple your spam, crash your computer, and give away your social security number to hackers. :)

If I have time later today I'll download it on Mrs. BA's PC and see how it goes. Stay Tuned.
