Google moon

A new Website, Google Moon, at moon.google.com, gives you the chance to explore significant sections of the lunar surface through your Web browser.The landing zones for the Apollo missions are highlighted on the photographic images, which suggests you’re in near-lunar orbit above the moon.Each of the six successful Apollo missions has its own section on the lunar site, where you can view the area where the modules landed. The areas around the Apollo landing sites are among the highest resolution images on the Google site.

This is very cool! We can now explore our own moon as well as the earth. Way to go, Google.
