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.
