This presentation is based on a 'Multi wavelength Milky Way' PDF by NASA (http://mwmw.gsfc.nasa.gov/images/mwmw_11a.pdf).
Visible light makes just a tiny fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum. Many space phenomena - like cosmic rays, supernova remnants, pulsars and ionized interstellar gas produce electromagnetic radiation in many different wavelengths - longer and shorter than those of the optical spectrum and thus invisible to the naked eye. In this presentation user can browse panoramas of The Milky Way galaxy based on several space and ground-based surveys conducted by NASA and other scientific institutions.

And a pretty rare application of Ventuz as it is usually not used in scientific visualization.
Thanks Karol. I was wondering how much is Ventuz used in sci and pop-sci viz.
As we live in the age of Big Data, visualization tools are becoming more and more important. We found Ventuz easy to use and it's integration of common data file formats extremely useful.
Currently I am working on a 3D map of all confirmed exoplanets ( as I type this the map is probably being presented at a conference dedicated to big data ). I found out that exploring data this way is not only useful for visual information but for detection of poorly formatted data entries.
