A revolution is now underway in Astronomy and Astrophysics. The next decade will witness the completion of massive, wide-area, multicolor imaging and spectroscopic surveys of the local and distant Universe.

With its strong legacy of public outreach, Hubble's Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) has been responsible for how most of the world views our universe. We recognize that, given the coming flood of information, the next step of this task is to allow users to actively explore the cosmos themselves. In this talk we hope to show some of the potential explorations of this wealth of data to help us all better understand and appreciate the universe in which we live. We will explore several facets of using the Multi-mission Archive at Space Telescope's (MAST) along with other survey mission such as the Sloan Digital Sky Survey can be combined with these holdings to do new and previously unattainable projects.

And finally we will discuss how the current trend of data source unification, as being explored by the International Virtual Observatory Affiliation (IVOA) members will help astronomy tackle the oncoming tsunami of data.
