    Default NASA World Wind - Realtime storms, weather, even maps of deep space, and planets!

    http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/features.html

    World Wind allows any user to zoom from satellite altitude into any place on Earth, leveraging high resolution LandSat imagery and SRTM elevation data to experience Earth in visually rich 3D, just as if they were really there.

    Particular focus was put into the ease of usability so people of all ages can enjoy World Wind. All one needs to control World Wind is a two button mouse. Additional guides and features can be accessed though a simplified menu. Navigation is automated with single clicks of a mouse as well as the ability to type in any location and automatically zoom into it.

    I love google earth and found it hard to believe that something was better. This is an amazing download and worth the time. Thanks!
