W5 STAR FORMING REGION
An interactive guided tour designed and built for Microsoft Research's WorldWide Telescope
W5: Multigenerational Star Formation takes viewers through a multi-wavelength guided tour of the W5 star-forming region, in the constellation Cassiopeia. As part of summer research conducted at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA), I interviewed astrophysicists Lori Allen and Xavier Koenig and wrote a script based on their research, as well as an interactive, general-audience tour, hosted on the online observatory WorldWide Telescope.
