Google Sky: Wishes do Come True

Ever since Google Earth 1.0 came out, I have been a huge fan. And ever since then, I have thought, "Now if we could only zoom out to the sky and go explore the universe." Now we can! Google Earth 4.2 has a new feature that lets you zoom around the heavens in the same way that you explore the Earth. There are stunnnig pictures from the Hubble Telescope. You can zoom right into the middle of nebulae, galaxies, and get right up close to stars. It is absolutely awesome! I think I may be even more addicted to Google Sky than I am to Google Earth.
