Nasa's open source World Wind 1.4 was released --

NASA World Wind (http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/)

World Wind lets you zoom from satellite altitude into any place on Earth. Leveraging Landsat satellite imagery and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission data, World Wind lets you experience Earth terrain in visually rich 3D, just as if you were really there.

I listed the features below, but better to check out Bull's Rambles --
