Very cool (and free) program from Microsoft - Microsoft Telescope

Every once in a while Microsoft comes out with a free program such as Microsoft Telescope. If you dig checking out the solar system, the galaxy and the universe while abiding at your computer, check out.........

I can't really fit any more programs on my pc, but I'm always up for some space exploration. Sometimes I don't need any technology at all, just kinda get spacey on my own.   ;D

cool pictures DB, if you spot any other mind blowing stuff out there,  I'd be grateful to see the shots.
You're damned if you dude, you're damned if you don't.

Fuckin' eh, man, will do. I'm a space exploration fanatic myself (not on the shabbos of course), but really get into the history of space exploration. Having said that, check out.........

The head of Nasa has hailed a "new era" in exploration after the launch of the first cargo delivery to the space station by a private company.

I've been using Star Chart on android for ages now it sets the relative position by GPS then you swing it around and can identify all sorts.

Cool Android app, M5. I'm going to check if they have anything like it of my iPhone. Who knows, now my next cell phone might have to be Android based.  ;D
