- Want to travel but can't? Go to mapcrunch.com and it uses Google street view to transport you to a random location anywhere in the world each time you click go!
- And if this Planet is not enough for you try accessmars.withgoogle.com you can literally explore the surface of Mars by steering Curiosity rover around.
- Or go to nasa.gov where the US Space Agency has just made all its media library available to view.
