NASA and Microsoft have announced that the two firms plan to offer planetary images and data available online via the Space Act Agreement. The project will have NASA and Microsoft jointly developing the technology and infrastructure needed to make the most interesting NASA content including images and data from Mars and the moon available.
The images and data will be offered via Microsoft's World Wide Telescope. Among the available images will be those taken by the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter when they are publically released this fall.
The agreement will see enough data coming from NASA to fill 20,000 DVDs, over 100 terabytes. Images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter will also be included among the images and data.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
