Hubble Telescope Tour in Google Earth

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Hubble Telescope Google released a new Google Earth tour of imagery captured by Hubble. The tour takes place in Google Earth Sky View. You can download the tour here or watch a preview in the video below.



Applications for Education
Space Science is a semester course offered by the science department at my school. This Google Earth tour could be a good visual aid that goes beyond simply looking at static images captured by the Hubble Telescope.
