Google has two fantastic new products: Google Earth and Google Moon. If you have a DSL or cable connection, you wil enjoy both.
If you have dialup, you’ll he happy visiting the Google Moon http://moon.google.com, which uses only your web browser.
You can see all the moon landing sites, as well as zoom out or way into on moon picture. Be sure to read about the various Google Moon projects in "More about Google Moon."
Google Earth http://earth.google.com starts with a 10 megabyte download and installation of the program.
Once you have installed it, double-clicking on its icon opens up a small globe. There the fun starts. Roll your mouse button towards you and you zoom in on the world. Click on a spot and it centers.
Playing around in the map of my old home town, I found my old house, my elementary school, my wife’s old house and more. I could even see the car sitting in front of the house!
Google Earch is a composite of satellite images to create a browseable world model. You can even add "pins" in the map for important points.
Bottom line: Google Earth is cool!
