Google Moon

i-d011f32944ee901564dc276b9a85f99d-moon.jpgAfter Google Mars, perhaps this was inevitable: Google Moon celebrates the anniversary of the first manned moon landing by presenting a swath of the lunar surface, mapped in the familiar Google style, with red flags marking the locations of six Apollo landing sites.

The project, explains Google Moon’s about page, is part of Google’s Copernicus initiative:

We can confirm that on July 20th, 2069, in honor of the 100th anniversary of mankind’s first manned lunar landing, Google will fully integrate Google Local search capabilities into Google Moon, which will allow our users to quickly find lunar business addresses, numbers and hours of operation, among other valuable forms of Moon-oriented local information.

No word yet on how they’ll be calculating time on the Moon. Any ideas?
