Google gets spaced out

Today is Percival Lowell’s Birthday.
huh, who…

Percival Lowell was a world famous astronomer who thought that there were canals on our sister planet Mars . He spent many years researching Mars, and came up with loads of interesting things about this relativley unknown planet.

Now google has joined the space race, and following on from their mapping of the moon last year, and now have mapped out Mars out for us.

Amazing stuff, allowing us to see all sorts of interesting things, from Lunar Landings to Mountains on our friendly neighbour.
