    Pros: 

    A great example of using a platform's capabilities for more than it was initially designed for.

    Cons: 

    Could do with a simpler URL maybe? space.google.com?

    Turns out the Google Maps interaction is a great way of looking at places generally and they’ve embraced this. Everyone knows how to use it so there’s no learning curve. Love it.

  • Pros: 

    See actual planets and moons up close and personal

    Cons: 

    Productivity will be down for the day

    This will be a great learning too for kids and so much fun for everyone.
