Immerse yourself in a seamless beautiful environment.
From web to desktop to full dome planetarium, WorldWide Telescope (WWT) enables you to explore the universe, bringing together imagery from the best ground and space-based telescopes in the world and combining it with 3D navigation. Experience narrated guided tours from astronomers and educators featuring interesting places in the sky. You can research and import your own data and visualize it, then create a tour to share with others.
Using Worldwide Telescope in mobile planetariums
WorldWide Telescope can easily be configured to work in an inflatable dome such as the Go-Dome pictured here. Using a laptop or desktop computer with a projector and either a fisheye lens or spherical mirror, you can project WorldWide Telescope onto the inflated dome, allowing an immersive environment for exploration of the sky and the 3D universe.
The image is an example of a portable planetarium that can be used with WorldWide Telescope for educational and public outreach events. It is a portable 13’ (4 meters) diameter, 9’ (3 meters) high inflatable dome that is small enough to be shipped as luggage and is very easy and quick to assemble. Portable domes as large as 30' (9 meters) are available.
