Dan 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.
