Yes, you read correctly :

moon.google.com...

There is only the areas around the earlier public landing sites, but the FAQ(below) answers give hope for more images being added later.

Google FAQ
---------------

1. Why did you do this?

Because we couldn't think of a better way to commemorate the first lunar landing, which occurred on July 20, 1969, than to give our users an opportunity to surf around the lunar surface themselves.

2. Why can't I see the surface in more detail?

Google Moon only has as much data as NASA was able to give us, so there are limitations (for now) on how close to the surface we can zoom.

3. What happens if I try to zoom too close?

Well, you'll have to go and find out, won't you?

4. Is Google Moon a result of your Copernicus initiative?

Glad you asked, and yes, the development of our lunar hosting and research center continues apace. We usually don’t announce future products in advance, but in this case, yes, we can confirm that on July 20th, 2069, in honor of the 100th anniversary of mankind’s first manned lunar landing, Google will fully integrate Google Local search capabilities into Google Moon, which will allow our users to quickly find lunar business addresses, numbers and hours of operation, among other valuable forms of Moon-oriented local information.



The truth is out here...And now on Google!

You should've looked harder


I think you'll find it's just the apollo landing sites.

Yeah, added some text about it just now. I still think its cool though, you can zoom in pretty far, and they say in the FAQ that they will add more data later if NASA provides.

I hope they eventually overhaul Google Earth and turn it into Google Galaxy or Universe or somethign like dat
Start with mapping our ENTIRE solar system and put it on the web free, like Google Earth is now hehe. Such a resource would be immesurably usefull methinks.

Also, for you Hitchiker fans, try searching for "What is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything."




Remeber who buildt the earth in Hitchhiker? Mice ! That would also explain why the moon is made of cheese!
