Think that's cool? Check out Google Moon to see their commemoration of the moon landing anniversary. Be sure to zoom all the way in, it's amazing!

It makes my back office PC cry in ineptitude.  It seems you need a pretty darned good gaming PC to even run this stuff (GeForce 2 not good enough for ya Google?).  Having compared this to the Microsoft effort, it is definitely ahead on points, but both solutions need some further work, especially if you are outside of the United States.

Got a wife who's forcing me to move to the south of town (about 50 miles from here), so I used Google Earth to measure the distances from downtown St. Louis, to the Art Museum, to certain spots. In the worst case, I'm going to be 15 further miles from something, in the best case, I'll be 20 miles closer to my favorite Opera house.
