Google’s Lunar experience has Moon

Google has enlisted NASA’s help to show off the moon-landing sites on Google Moon by adding new images, audio and video clips to a site it launched in 2005. They’ve also added detailed charts, which can be used by explorers who wish to win the $20 million Google Lunar X Prize by putting a rover on the moon. This is another example of a 2006 deal between Google and NASA.

This is the farthest zoom-out, where you can begin your exploration at an actual landing site by clicking on a pushpin or one of the Apollo thumbnails.
