Red Planet

I was browsing through the Google Labs projects earlier today and came across a collaboration between NASA and Google, Google Mars. They have mapped the planet Mars similar to how they have mapped Earth. It is really neat; you can see where all spacecraft have landed or crashed, and read all the stories related to the red planet. I did wonder whether it is the precursor to setting up a colony on the planet and Google being the only website to have a map. 😉
