google_moonGoogle has added aerial photos of the Moon for Google Maps in honor of the first manned Moon landing by NASA astronauts on Apollo 11 on July 20, 1969. According to the Google website, "Google will fully integrate Google Local search capabilities into Google Moon, which will allow our users to quickly find lunar business addresses, numbers and hours of operation, among other valuable forms of Moon-oriented local information." Google Moon is reportedly a product of Google's Copernicus initiative, otherwise known as the Google Copernicus Hosting Environment and Experiment in Search Engineering (G.C.H.E.E.S.E.), which will conduct studies in "entropized information filtering, high-density high-delivery hosting (HiDeHiDeHo) and de-oxygenated cubicle dwelling." The new lunar mapping feature could come in handy when you're looking for a landing pad of your own from Craigslist.
P.S. - Readers are encouraged to use the zoom feature to see a close-up of the moon.
