Virtual Moon Trip Coming Up, MSNBC
"Imagine hitching a ride to the moon on a pint-sized space probe - and experiencing every high point of the flight in real time, thanks to virtual-reality technology. If Pete Worden, the director of NASA's Ames Research Center, has his way, this dream could well become a reality - well, at least a beta version of reality - in a little more than a year."
"In recent weeks, there have been scores of instances of agencies struggling in the new Web 2.0 world. Some examples are the Armys foiled attempts to silence soldier bloggers and the Defense Department ruling that YouTube and other so-called entertainment Web sites are verboten to anyone using a DOD computer. So it was interesting this past week to see a different approach from the director of NASAs Ames Research Center."
