Google Mars

Google has bridged the final frontier: Google Mars. Working with researchers from NASA, the search engine compiled images of Mars on a map, making it possible to view the detail of the red planet as easily as we view Earth's. Now, not only can we view the mountains, canyons, dunes, plains, ridges and craters according elevation, visible imagery or infrared, but Google balloons also mark the locations of specific regions, spacecraft and stories on our red neighbor.

What's this got to do with bringing God-talk into the open space? The first verse of How Great Thou Art comes to mind. But then, I'm not the first one to think of that.
