The Universe & The Human Body

Following on from my last post with more innovative internet applications that will be great in the classroom yet alone our own curiousity to explore both the universe and the human body.

The 'WorldWide Telescope' from Microsoft Research Labs.

The WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a rich visualization environment that functions as a virtual telescope, bringing together imagery from the best ground and space telescopes in the world for a seamless, guided exploration of the universe.

The 'Visible Body' from Argosy Publications.

Argosy's Visible Body is the most comprehensive human anatomy visualization tool available today. This entirely Web-delivered application offers an unparalleled understanding of human anatomy. The Visible Body includes 3D models of over 1,700 anatomical structures, including all major organs and systems of the human body.

More video on the background of the WorldWide Telescope can be found at Scoble's FastCompany.tv
