Did You Catch the Amazing Race Last Night?

That’s right! Last night on the season premiere of the Amazing Race, Bing Maps was there! Using the visual experience engine from Microsoft which powered the WordWide Telescope (WWT) and Bing Maps, viewers could visualize the contestants’ route.


The WorldWide Telescope is released as a free resource to the scientific community with the hope that it will inspire and empower people to explore and understand the universe like never before. And Bing Maps is the platform used to view the WWT imagery.

Don’t worry if you missed last night’s episode, you can watch it here. And be sure to tune in next Sunday to see where the contestants travel, who stays in the race, and where in the world they will go next.
