It's really, really cool! http://moon.google.com Their FAQ is really, really funny, and the detail is awesome. It on;y covers a small area, but it includes a list of the flight crew on every Apollo mission that's landed there. Oh, zoom to the closest detail level. Awesome stuff. -S Promote this thread!

There are Weiners on the moon!" (edited by EddieBurkett on 20.7.05 1310)

Is it me, or does anbody else have a problem making their eyes see the craters as craters and not convex "bumps"?

Isn't the cheese supposed to be green? Good joke, though.

Is it me, or does anbody else have a problem making their eyes see the craters as craters and not convex "bumps"? They do look like bumps. Incidentally, why does the highest magnification turn the moon yellow and make it look like swiss cheese? Am I missing something? EDIT: Whoosh! That joke went right over my head until I read The Thrill's post. I had the temptation to totally edit my post, but aren't we all allowed a little stupidity at some point?

Also, I'm not an astronomy expert or anything, but the moon can't possibly be that small. But, yeah, I know, it's supposed to represent the area around the lunar landings and that's it.

Have they set it up yet so you can 'travel' from the Earth to the Moon yet?
