WWT at AAS

WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a sponsor of the 225th meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in Seattle January 4-8, 2015. If you are attending the meeting, look for friends of WorldWide Telescope (WWT) who will be at the booth on the exhibition floor. Find us at Booth: 509, 511, 513. You can find contact information for the team and the exact location of the WWT booth here

At the booth you will be able to test drive WorldWide Telescope on a variety of devices, including a desktop, large touch-screen and even head mounted virtual reality goggles. More importantly you can connect with other users of WWT through informal conversations or by participating in special topic discussions where astronomers and educators will demonstrate their individual takes of WWT in Action.
