Google - Earth and beyond

Google released yesterday a beta version of Google Earth that includes a Google Sky feature. It allows you to browse through over 100 million galaxies and 200 million stars!!

"People can now use Google to peruse astrological wonders such as the Crab Nebula, an expanding remnant of a supernova 6,300 light years from earth. Markers within the star photos pull in explanatory text from Wikipedia." (of course :) )

I LOVE it!
It's just amazing, and I am speechless.

I'm downloading it right away. My first mission will be to try to locate the "asteroïde B612", the Little Prince's planet - haha.
