Terapixel Project IntroductionDan Fay, director of the Earth, Energy, and Environment effort at Microsoft Research, talks about the Terapixel Project. This project enables you to take a virtual tour of the cosmos in which you can see the entire sky at once then zoom into detailed views of distant galaxies. The Terapixel project from Microsoft Research makes all of that possible, by creating the largest and clearest image of the night sky ever produced—a terapixel image, now available in the WorldWide Telescope and Bing Maps.

More Degrees, More Pixels, More Lumens, More Real- The Evolution of the Modern PlanetariumWhat you can do with a domed theater, how is it done and why you would ever do it! What started as an evolution has turned into a revolution leading to the WorldWide Telescope and Unity 3D full dome interactive experiences. The Burke Baker Planetarium in Houston has been in the thick of this innovation for over 40 years. This presentation provides both the context for change and the demand for content far beyond the star field and pointer.
