Google shoots for the moon

By Charlene Li

Google’s mission “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful” just took a flying leap from cyberspace to real space -- check out their use of Google Maps technology on Google Moon, which plots the Apollo landings on yes, the moon. Why do this? To commemorate the first lunar landing on July 20th, 1969.

And they have a sense of humor – check out their job posting for their lunar location called Google Copernicus Center.

Hat tip to Jimmy Guterman for the lead.

Update: BTW, that sense of humor is pretty cheesy -- zoom in all the way on the moon image to find out more.
