Space out with planets in Google Maps

Twenty years ago, the spacecraft Cassini launched from Cape Canaveral on a journey to uncover the secrets of Saturn and its many moons. During its mission, Cassini recorded and sent nearly half a million pictures back to Earth, allowing scientists to reconstruct these distant worlds in unprecedented detail. Now you can visit these places—along with many other planets and moons—in Google Maps right from your computer. For extra fun, try zooming out from the Earth until you’re in space! Explore the icy plains of Enceladus, where Cassini discovered water beneath the moon’s crust—suggesting signs of life. Peer beneath the thick clouds of Titan to see methane lakes. Inspect the massive crater of Mimas—while it might seem like a sci-fi look-a-like, it is a moon, not a space station. Special thanks goes to astronomical artist Björn Jónsson, who assembled the planetary maps of Europa, Ganymede, Rhea, and Mimas by working with imagery from NASA and the European Space Agency. The fun doesn’t stop there—we’ve added Pluto, Venus, and several other moons for a total of 12 new worlds for you to explore. Grab your spacesuit and check out the rest of this corner of the galaxy that we call home. Source – Google

Google’s homepage just picked up an ‘About Us’ page and a link to the Google Store

The homepage for Google is pretty clean and free of well, everything, allowing users to focus in on what they came for — search. Google rarely adds anything to this page, so it’s a pretty big deal when new links are added. Recently, it seems Google has decided to add two new links to its homepage. Sitting in the top left corner of the Google homepage (via Android Police) are two new links to a new “About Us” page and to the company’s store. These are honestly pretty simple additions, but meaningful nonetheless. The new link to the Google Store will undoubtedly pull thousands over to check out the companies various products, so it’s probably safe to assume this was added shortly after October 4th’s big hardware event. More interesting, however, is the addition of the new “About Us” page. This page has a selection of stories and blog posts regarding project and products from Google, and it even has a Google Trends widget to show off live searches. Scrolling further down the page you can find information on the day’s Google Doodle, posts from the company’s social media, and even some behind-the-scenes information.
