OK, this is way too cool. I've been playing with Nasa's WorldWind application for quite awhile, mainly using it to map testing sites for the U.S. nuclear weapons program. I hadn't paid very close attention to the add-ons available for WorldWind until I went to download the latest version to put on my laptop. Apparently it now comes with maps for Mars as well, and not just fake ones but actual satellite data and mapping. How cool is that!?!

I'm hoping to eventually begin adding some of the nuclear testing maps to this site for public access.

And no, my fascination with nuclear weapons is neither military nor political. It's purely scientific. The science involved in creating and developing these weapons is simply amazing.
