Google Mars Attacks !!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, March 14, 2006

A new planet-spanning Web site..... Google Mars... launches it on what would have been Mars astronomer Percival Lowell's 151st birthday. At the heart of the new Web site lies a gigantic picture-puzzle image of Mars created by researchers at Arizona State University's Mars Space Flight Facility. Provides - Regions, Mountains, Plains, Spacecraft, Canyons, Ridges, Stories, Dunes Craters.

I zoomed into many sites of mars surface from Google Mars site....and took some pictures but could'nt upload here coz our net speed is Terrific ....... and i possibly upload it tomorrow....

[Update : 18.03.2006 : 3 Snaps]

Google is now showing you maps of the Mars. This feels just like Google Maps for earth, or the previous Google Moon*. You can switch between three different map types; elevation, visible**, and infrared. A list of "links of interest" (like where spacecrafts landed), as well as named mountains, canyons, dunes and craters is also available.

Google in their Mars FAQ says they're working on a version of this Mars data to be used in Google Earth (desktop) clients.

The Google Mars map is also linked from a special Google logo today (we know those little cyan aliens from the Google Mars logo of January 2004).

*Google Moon was only a half-serious project though (try zooming in as close as you can to see why).

**As to why this visible map is in gray-scale, not color, Google replies: "In true color, Mars pretty much looks like butterscotch. We chose a gray-scale map in order to highlight more surface details."

Signs of a coming Google galaxy...

As the Googlist notes, Google Mars may only be the beginning of a coming "Google Galaxy." Back in 2005, Google registered the following domains for Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, Pluto and so on (always with .com, .org, .net and .info):

  • GoogleMercury.com
  • GoogleVenus.com
  • GoogleJupiter.com
  • GoogleSaturn.com
  • GoogleUranus.com
  • GoogleNeptune.com
  • GooglePluto.com
  • GoogleGalaxy.com
  • GoogleGalactic.com
  • GoogleSatellite.com
  • GoogleSolarSystem.com
