NEW YORK (AP) - Google Inc. is offering a more wide-ranging view
of the Moon, 40 years after humans first landed there.
To commemorate Monday's anniversary of the Apollo 11 crew's
first steps on the lunar surface, Google Earth is adding a guided
moon tour with astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Jack Schmitt, who was a
pilot on the later Apollo 17 mission.
The free software also offers panoramic images shot by the
Apollo astronauts, new video footage and other features.
The new features are available with the Google Earth 5.0
