Feeling like "I'm down with the kids" here is the latest update on Google Lies, I mean Mars.

Google Mars has been available since 2009 as part of the free downloadable Google Earth. It allows viewers to zoom around the Red Planet in much higher resolution than the simpler browser version and will even render certain locations in 3-D. You can reach it by clicking the little orange Saturn-shaped button at the top of the screen in Google Earth.

But google have just released a new and improved version (Probably with even moree hazy obscured bits! Ahem)

Here is a link to wired, a report I have come across this morning.

Between the Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, we have literally hundreds of thousands of high-resolution pictures of the surface of Mars.

Here is a pretty good attemt at archiving all of them in an easily-accessable format: Maps of all Mars images.
