World Wide Telescope
In [cs/0403018] The World Wide Telescope: An Archetype for Online Science, researchers Jim Gray and Alexander Szalay predict: "The World-Wide Telescope (WWT) will emerge from the world’s online astronomy data. It will have observations in all the observed spectral bands, from the best instruments back to the beginning of history...Today, you can find and study all the astronomy literature online with Google™ and AstroPh. In the future you should be able to find and analyze the underlying observational data just as easily."
