One Giant Leap

Or was it a just a small step? Anyway, it was 40 years ago. What? The Moon landing, of course! Born in 1971 I just missed it. Thanks to the JFK Library I can experience it just as it happened in 1969 at the site We choose the Moon! Nasa is celebrating too, check out this site: Apollo 11. Two cool sites you must not miss!

Universe of data

NASA is working together with Microsoft to make high-resolution images and astronomical data more accessible to the public, according to Space Daily. This will be done with Microsoft’s WorldWide Telescope. WorldWide Telescope only works with Microsoft’s own Windows but there is a web version using Silverlight. Silverlight is working on Mac and Firefox if you can stand slow and bloated software from Microsoft.
