Go Inside the Kennedy Space Center with Street View

Last month Google released some great Street View imagery of Antarctica. Today, Google released more great Street View imagery. The new imagery takes us inside the Kennedy Space Center. There are now 6,000 images of all of the notable aspects of the space center. Students can now look around in control rooms, hangars, launch pads and more.

New Street View imagery probably won't dramatically change the way anyone teaches, but Street View imagery is definitely a step above looking at static pictures in books and or online. In Street View students can pick what they want to explore in more detail. I also like that students get to explore the imagery on a map which should help them remember where the places they're looking at are located in the world.
