Microsoft joins forces with Nasa

Microsoft joins forces with Nasa

Businesses that use Microsoft technology are set to be in good company as the software giant has just announced plans to offer its services to Nasa.

The two firms are to join forces in a bid to produce powerful images and data of the moon and Mars, which will be made available to the public online.

Microsoft will incorporate material gained through Nasa's Mars Reconnaissance Order and host it via what is to be known as the Worldwide Telescope.

Tony Hey, corporate vice president of Microsoft External Research, explained: "Worldwide Telescope serves as a powerful tool for computer science researchers, educators and students to explore space and experience the excitement of computer science."

Meanwhile, Microsoft recently launched its latest web browser Windows Internet Explorer 8.

The organisation claimed that it boasts among the fastest speeds on the market today, with page loading times that beat almost half of the internet's top 25 websites, including Yahoo! and Digg.
