Check out Quest View in Google Maps.

Some cool landmarks...

Buckingham Palace
Paris
Area 51
Washington DC

Don't forget to zoom in to StreetView - you won't be disappointed.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Cool...cheers for the hat tip. I usually avoid the interwebs on Sunday and briefly forgot that this fun starts on the 1st @ midnight UTC. [Smile]

P.S. WIN!

A bit earlier than that, 13 hours for Kiwis, 11 hours for us here in oz.

Oh, and just to make the most of the frivolity, today is 25 hours long here.
(not a joke, today's also set-the-clocks-back day)

WOW!
If you zoom in on a Google office, you see these little geeks in very familiar-looking propellor beanies.

LOL. I did not notice that yesterday. Nor did I notice that they did streetview too. 111 8th in NYC looks exactly like the giant LEGO sculpture of the building that is in the office.

FWIW: The official Googler propeller beanie is slightly different than the Geek Culture one. It has fewer colors and a different brim.
