Exploring space with Google Sky



Google has maps and photos of nearly all of the earth’s surface. Now Google Sky lets you explore space, with the Moon and Mars enjoying a special status.

Everybody knows Google Maps. The project by the search engine giant Google has caused much ado in recent years because it maps the whole of the earth with varying degrees of accuracy. But Google wouldn’t be Google if it were happy with what it had achieved. And it only makes sense for Google to push its mapping project’s limits into space.
