It’s apparently no longer enough for Google to map almost every corner of the Earth. Now the Internet’s 800-pound gorilla is turning its attention to the universe. NASA and Google announced Monday the release of a new Mars mode in Google Earth that brings to everyone’s desktop a high-res, 3D view of the Red Planet.

Wow, that is pretty interesting. I know earlier this week Google announced that it was going to include the mapping of oceans in Google Earth.

:shocks: This sounds incredible, but I've heard nothing about it at all. It would be truly amazing to view Mars up close and the images must be taken by NASA, but I wonder they'll airbrush out any rather unusual features that may point to the possibility of some sort of life on Mars, however small and wether in the past or the present? ;)

Any updates on this Google service that you know of?
