By now, most of us are familiar with Google Earth, but what about Google Moon? This lunar version of the geobrowser allows visitors to virtually explore all six missions of the Apollo Program carried out between 1962 and 1972. Visitors can examine a variety of spectacular photographs from each mission via map pins, which arrange photographs by geographic location on the moon. Alternatively, visitors can browse thumbnail images from each mission. Each photograph is accompanied by a short description that provides context as well as links to related resources and video clips. For example, by selecting one of these links, visitors will find the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, a record of lunar surface operations that includes parts of the original radio transcript from all six journeys. An extensively developed pan and zoom capability really brings the experience to life. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.
