Space and UFO Fans Can Now Take a Virtual Tour of Mars and the Moon

By Mary-Ann Russon

     Fans of space, UFOs, astronomy and Google Earth satellite photos, rejoice! Google has expanded its Google Maps software to include the option to go beyond Earth and take a virtual tour of the Moon and Mars.

Now you can explore our celestial neighbour and the Red Planet from the comfort of your home without having to manually search through Nasa's extensive database of raw images taken by rovers and satellites, which are uploaded to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Mars Science Laboratory website or Space Images of the Moon.

That's right, Google has done the work for you, adding incredibly detailed photographs from Nasa, together with geographical and historical details that you may not know about the celestial bodies . . .
