Tour The Moon With Buzz Aldrin And Google Earth

The Google Earth team is launching a lunar exploration tool allowing us to explore the moon much like we can explore good ole mother earth. With Google Earth loaded you simply select "Moon" from the top tool bar as explained in the following video. The tool includes actual NASA planning charts, lunar mission videos, and detail pertaining to the lunar missions in the artifacts folder. Astronaut's Buzz Aldrin and Jack Schmidtt each provide guided tours. Just in time to renew our interest in the space program and coinciding with the 40th anniversary celebrations.
