Google Maps now has planets

Now on the maps you can view in detail the surface of 16 celestial bodies.

Google has added an update to Google Maps that will allow users to visit the planets of the solar system and their satellites. A message about this appeared on the company’s blog. In total, 16 celestial areas are available on maps: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon, Mars, Dwarf planet Ceres, Pluto, Jupiter’s companions-Io, Europe and Ganymede, Satellites of Saturn-Mimas, Enceladus, Dion, Reia, Titan and Iapetus.

“Twenty years ago, the Cassini spacecraft set off from Cape Canaveral on a journey to uncover the secrets of Saturn and its numerous moons. During his mission, “Cassini” recorded and sent to Earth almost half a million shots, which allowed scientists to seamlessly reconstruct these distant worlds,” Google representatives said. — Now you can visit these places with many other planets using Google maps directly from your computer. For additional pleasure, try zooming in until you are in space!”
