Explore dozen of planets and icy moons with Google's Sweet New Solar System Maps

New Delhi:

Space fans have all reasons to feel on top of the world as a new Map like feature has recently been introduced by Google and you can explore a number of icy moons and a bunch of other planets in our solar system.

The story is not end here. Apart from moon and some of our favourite planetary neighbours like Mercury, Venus and Pluto, the brand new feature will amaze you with an exciting glance of icy plains of Enceladus, where Cassini discovered water beneath the moon and further suggested the existence of life.

According to reports, astronomical artist Björn Jónsson has assembled the planetary maps of Europa, Ganymede, Rhea, and Mimas by working with imagery from NASA and the European Space Agency.

"During its mission, Cassini recorded and sent nearly half a million pictures back to Earth, allowing scientists to reconstruct these distant worlds in unprecedented detail," Google said in a blog post while talking about their latest wonder-filled creation.

"Now you can visit these places — along with many other planets and moons — in Google Maps right from your computer," they added.

Hence, a total of 12 new worlds have been added for space freaks to explore and quite possibly some of them are already on their way and gearing up to catch a glance of some of the corner of our mysterious galaxy.
