Google Mars In Various Colors Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
It seems as if the boys and gals at Google have decided to commemorate Percival Lowell's birthday with the launch of Google Mars--in various colors.

(Google Blog) In commemoration of Lowell's birthday, we're pleased to bring you Google Mars. Explore the red planet in three different ways: an elevation map shows color-coded peaks and valleys, a visible-imagery map shows what your eyes would actually see, and an infrared-imagery map shows the detail your eyes would miss.

The layout is similar to Google Moon, without the cheese of course! But for the space fans who desire something more globe like, Google is working on a similar version within Google Earth.

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
