    Nice find, glad they have finally released this. There is a video demo from the TED conference here:
    TED | Talks | Roy Gould, Curtis Wong: WorldWide Telescope (video)

    Google earth also has a similar but less impressive feature:
    Google Earth has a Sky function. Select "Switch to Sky" in the View pull down menu and Earth will disappear and become a celestial globe.

    Yep went to have fun with this yesterday but there is a bug where it isn't always picking up the proxy settings from IE so I can only use offline mode, so no pretty pictures
