One of the features of the telescope software is the ability for both experts and amateur stargazers to offer their own guided tour of the universe to share with others. The latest such tour is by Wall-E, the animated robot from the Disney/Pixar movie of the same name.
"WorldWide Telescope is about making science fun for everyone," Curtis Wong, manager of Microsoft's Next Media Research Group, said in a statement. "By working with Disney/Pixar, we're enabling kids and families to discover the magic of the universe for themselves in an even more engaging way. What could be more fun than exploring space with a famous robot?"
