Explore the Kennedy Space Center Online with Google Street View
With all the excitement over the Mars rover landing this weekend, you might also want to know that Google has gotten their cameras into the Kennedy Space Center for their largest collection of Street View imagery to date. In total, the explorable facility totals 6,000 panoramic views.
The views include the space shuttle launch pad, the towering Vehicle Assembly Building, and a up-close and personal view of a space shuttle's main engine.
With NASA's dwindling role in space exploration, this might be one of the last opportunities to admire all of its accomplishments. It's truly an unprecedented online look behind the scenes of some landmark moments in scientific progress.
To check out the view for yourself, just go to maps.google.com/nasa.
