The TED Talks are always interesting and here's one that looks promising.
At first this is odd for several reasons:
First, I am actually excited about something coming from Microsoft.
Second, it looks like something from Microsoft will actually outdo something from Google.
Third, it's something from Microsoft that is going to be free!
(The skeptic in me thinks this will only be available for Windows Vista)
So imagine something like Google Sky, but with a seamless unification of all the best pictures of the heavens.
Here's the TED Talk introducing the World Wide Telescope:
