Groundbreaking Digital Experience for Endeavour Shuttle Launch

 Definitely worth a look

For the first time, people around the world can view 3-D images of the space shuttle Endeavour and surrounding buildings at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida before it launches into space, through a collaboration between Microsoft Corp. and NASA. Microsoft® Live Labs and NASA developed the environments using hundreds of photographs and a photo-imaging technology called Photosynth™. Photosynth uses hundreds of standard digital camera images to construct a 3-D view of an environment that can be navigated and explored in a highly intuitive manner.

Groundbreaking Digital Experience for Endeavour Shuttle Launch: Microsoft’s Photosynth 3-D imagery gives people around the world unprecedented views of the shuttle vehicle and its launchpad.
