Google Goes to the Moon

Googlemoon Google Maps, which allows you to see your home and neighborhood from satellite imagery, has now gone to the moon.  Google Moon allows you to explore the moon's surface.  So if you thought you could get some privacy by escaping to the moon, better start thinking of another plan.  Anyway, this website is quite fun, as is Google Maps, where you can check out what your rooftop looks like from above.  Humorously, Google Maps obscures the Capitol, so that it appears all blurry.  That must really provide tons of added security!   

UPDATE: I just learned that the moon really is made of cheese.  Try zooming up really close, and you'll see.  So it's really true after all!

There's no contradiction between the moon being made both from cheese and rock. Just think what happens when you let cheese sit around for millions of years- it gets all dried out into a rock-like substance. So, the supposed difficulties are solved, by science, even.
