Out of this world

We all know of Microsoft’s plan for world dominance but I didn’t realise they were intending to take over space too.

This week sees the launch of the beta of its Worldwide Telescope project which links together images from the Hubble Space Telescope and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey giving all of us the opportunity to scan the heavens as never before.

All great fun I am sure, and very educational, but it does leave Microsoft with a problem – what is there left to take over?
