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:

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?

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

Pros:

See actual planets and moons up close and personal

Cons:

Productivity will be down for the day

I worked in the US for a year at a consulting firm and we often had to make maps using Google Earth as a reference... but man so many hours wasted looking at cool stuff in national parks and planets 🙄
