We use the VWs as a platform to conduct rigorous research activities in the fields of computational astrophysics and data-intensive astronomy, seeking to determine the potential of these new technologies, as well as to develop a new set of best practices for scholarly and research activities enabled by them, and by a combination of the existing Web-based and the new VR technologies. In that process, we may facilitate new astrophysical discoveries. We also hope to generate new ideas and methods which will in turn stimulate development of new technological capabilities in immersive VR and VWs, both as research and communication tools, and in the true sense of human-centered computational engineering.

The insights gained here would presumably be portable to Exploring the Use of Virtual Worlds as a Scientific Research Platform 35 Fig. 2. G. Djorgovski et al. ) where numerical simulations are the only option of modeling of complex systems. 3 Immersive Multi-Dimensional Data Visualization In a more general context, VWs offer intriguing new possibilities for scientific visualization or “visual analytics” [19, 20]. As the size, and especially the complexity of scientific data sets increase, effective visualization becomes a key need for data analysis: it is a bridge between the quantitative information contained in complex scientific measurements, and the human intuition which is necessary for a true understanding of the phenomena in question.
