Is coming nearer on the path.

Moon is Famous

In other news, today is the 36th anniversary of the first moon landing. Google, has set up a tribute, derived from its new maps functionality. Be sure to use the control in the upper left-hand corner to zoom in on the Moon's surface; the imagery is of an astonishing quality.

Given the trillion-dollar market cap and improbably meteoric rise in stock valuation, how is it that those Google folks remain so damned cute?

Please tell me you zoomed all the way in.

Also, I saw a screenshot that showed links of the landing sites to "get directions to here", which I imagine would have been pretty funny, but I didn't see them there when I checked out the site myself.
