A researcher at the Harvard Center for Astrophysics, Roy Gould gives the first public demo of the World Wide Telescope, a powerful new web-based tool for exploring the universe, developed by TEDster Curtis Wong and his team at Microsoft.
Roy Gould works in the Science Education Department at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. At the Center for Astrophysics, he has worked on collaborations with science museums and other institutions to capture the power of shared information, on projects such as the MicroObservatory, a network of five automated telescopes that can be controlled over the Internet.
"While watching the demo, I realized the way I look at the world was about to change."Robert Scoble
