Google Maps Adds Other Planets

The exciting function Google Maps has introduced allows people to view various planets, the moon and the International Space Station.

Missing from the planet list are Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, but with data from the Cassini mission still being analysed and Jupiter probe Juno still collecting data, chances are we won't have to wait too long.

However, it appears that there are some errors and Google Maps got some names and images wrong. During this mission, Cassini recorded and sent almost 500,000 pictures to scientists on Earth, allowing them to reconstruct these far-off worlds in unprecedented detail.

These new additions are available exclusively on the web-based version of Google Maps.

Usually, when you think about Google Maps you think about exploring the Earth and seeing any location you like from the comfort of your own room.

Google Maps now lets everyone explore more than a dozen distant planets and moons. "Inspect the massive crater of Mimas - while it might seem like a sci-fi look-a-like, it is a moon, not a space station", Google said.

The Maps team have added Pluto, Venus, and several other moons for a total of 12 new worlds to explore.

The best place to start is https://www.google.com/maps/space, which will get you situated with a choice of 17 realms to explore. He is also fanatical about football which makes it all the more odd that he should support Stockport County.
