The software which was created by Microsoft in which they built a Universe inside the software and which displays the astronomical world such as skymaps,stars,planets,satellites and more u need to experience by downloading the amazing software.Simply u can experience the 3D Universe in your computer. It can also be used to visualise arbitrary or abstract data sets and time series data, using the power of a PC graphics card to render up to a half million data points. Images are taken from the Hubble Space telescope and approximately ten earth-bound telescopes. It is possible to view the sky in many wavelengths of light.The software utilizes Microsoft’s Visual Experience Engine technologies to function. The program runs on Microsoft windows in co ordinance with silver light. The program is designed to scale from web browser to desktop to large multi-channel full dome digital planetarium.In which  this software gives my childhood experience back which was a school trip  in my local Gandhi Planetarium Vijayawada
