While you pretty much have to be a rocket scientist to make a trip to outer space, you don’t have to be an astronaut to explore Mars or the Moon—now you can take a virtual tour from your desktop on Google Maps.

To start your interplanetary adventure, look for Earth mode at the bottom left of your map (on supported browsers). Click on “Earth,” zoom all the way out until you see the entire globe, and you’ll see these two celestial bodies pop up at the bottom of
your screen.

Spin Mars and watch the atmosphere change around the red planet; tilt the Moon and imagine yourself gliding along its peaks and craters; and to brush up on your astronomy, click on one of the thousands of labeled topographic features.

Start exploring at google.com/maps/space/mars & google.com/maps/space/moon!

Mission Control at #GoogleMaps just cleared you for launch. Make like @Curiosity and explore the craters of Mars → goo.gl/OopkP0, then take a virtual trip to the Moon → goo.gl/CoVGQ9. #2YearsOnMars

How can I register with Google my local business on Mars, located near Enipeus Vallis? ;) Not many walk ins currently, and I hope with map entry I may get some better results.

"Ok google, navigate to Montes Rook, Moon by public transport." Great to see a map of the Moon and Mars finally here, can't wait to plan my next holiday! #googlemaps   #mapsupdate   #google
