A public talk by Jonathan Fay, the lead scientist on Microsoft’s World Wide Telescope project, and an enthusiastic amateur astronomer.

The World Wide Telescope is an initiative from Microsoft that allows anyone to browse the Universe from the comfort of their own laptop. Combining up-to-date images from space- and ground-based telescopes with features such as expert guided tours, it is a project that can both inspire and educate anyone from the complete novice to the informed amateur.

Entrance is free and everyone is welcome. Click here for directions to the Institute of Astronomy.
