Google Moon Day

Today, the 36th anniversary of man’s first walk on the moon, is starting to be celebrated as the informal holiday known as Moon Day. This year, to help celebrate, a couple of Google’s brightest, also known as the Moon Children, released a fine addition to Google’s new online map service: Google Moon. Moon children? That’s because their birthdays are on July 20th.

By the way, long held theories of the universe are affirmed at the google moon site; you just have to look deep enough.

On a more serious note, from now on we can also use this day to celebrate the life of one who helped inspire a generation interested in engineering, outer space and space travel. RIP Scotty.
