Google Moon - Been there - lets do it again to stay

Well we aren't back to the Moon with humans yet.
This gives us a little more time to learn what we can and see where we
might like to go.

Pop in on the Moon with Google Moon and enjoy the view.

Maybe later we will have updates that show your kids habitats.

International Space Race Heats Up as More Players Jump In
Monday, July 28, 2008

As NASA's space-shuttle program nears its official end in 2010, space
exploration has become an increasingly global competition.

The Europeans, Russians, Chinese and others are competing for bragging rights to
develop the next generation of manned spacecraft.

NASA's Constellation program, designed both to replace the space shuttle and get
America back to the moon and on to Mars, has gotten a lot of publicity and a
lot of flak as it threatens to go over budget and behind schedule.

Meanwhile, the Europeans and Russians have teamed up to create their own
platform, the Chinese are continually upgrading their vehicles and the Japanese and Indians are mulling their own
manned space flights.
