Google Maps the Surface of the Moon

Commemorating the first manned moon landing that took place 36 years ago today, Google has launched a variant of Google Maps thats lets users find out if the moon is realy made of cheese. While browsing the lunar surface, Google Moon also points out the locations of the six Apollo moon landings.“Google Moon only has as much data as NASA was able to give us, so there are limitations (for now) on how close to the surface we can zoom,” Google says. The company also announced that by 2069, it expects to integrate Google Local into Google Moon to help lunar visitors find businesses, phone numbers and other important information.
