Now, Google gets a map for the moon

Google has come up with an interesting way to honor the first manned moon landing, which took place 36 years ago on July 20, 1969. The company has added some NASA imagery to its Maps interface, which enables the users to surf the exact spot where man first landed on Moon.
Google Moon is basically an extension of Google Maps and Google Earth and uses NASA imagery to surf Moon’s surface. You can also check out the exact spots where Apollo astronauts landed.
It can be accessed by clicking on the temporary moon logo on the Google homepage or by visiting http://moon.google.com . The map allows the user to zoom in and out, but you might be in for a surprise if you zoom in too close.
