Their mission: “is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”. Well, it looks as though they’ve taken it one step further and are now organizing the universe’s information and make it accessible and useful to the world. Google has brought together thousands of star maps, glass plate photos, Hubble data and photos from observatories around the world and embedded them into their product, Google Earth. The new features require a free download of the new version of Google Earth.
