Google soon will index content from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
Content indexed will include three-dimensional maps of the moon and Mars, and real-time tracking of the International Space Station and space shuttle and will “allow every American to experience a virtual flight over the surface of the moon or through the canyons of Mars,” according to NASA Administrator Michael Griffin.
Future endeavors will apply Google’s search features to scientific data.
