The New Google Moon

Google Moon went live
back in
July 2005 with relatively low resolution images of our closest neighbor. In
conjunction with today’s news about Google backing private moon landings through
the Google Lunar X PRIZE,
a new version of Google Moon
has been
released
.

Resolution is higher, the company says. There’s also short stories about
things like moon landings integrated into the map (example),
and you can get some 360 degree "Street View" style views in some places (example),
as well as some charts. The FAQ
page
has more information.

Google says much of the information now on Google Moon has come through its
partnership with NASA.
