Just like Google Earth but open source!

World Wind is open source software that 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.

Hmm, yeah perhaps I should clarify that... The google app is free but not open source. The SDK for Google Earth costs tens of thousands of dollars. World Wind is completely open source and the SDK is free.

Google Earth isn't free?
