Posted on April 3, 2012 Perpetual Ocean Explore the ocean currents that have been visualised by the Goddard Space Flight Center. As soon as the video from NASA hit the internet we were looking at a way to bring this data into Google Earth and allow interactive exploration of the oceans currents. We did not produce this data. All we do is visualise it in Google Earth the way we think it is supposed to be seen.

Our site is community driven so that means we are looking for feedback from you. Please tell us what you think. Our Mission Around the Solar System - In Focus Robotic probes launched by NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and others are gathering information all across the solar system. We currently have spacecraft in orbit around the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and Saturn, and two operational rovers on Mars. Several others are on their way to smaller bodies, and a few are heading out of the solar system entirely. Although the Space Shuttle no longer flies, astronauts are still at work aboard the International Space Station, performing experiments and sending back amazing photos. With all these eyes in the sky, I'd like to take another opportunity to put together a recent photo album of our solar system -- a set of family portraits, of sorts -- as seen by our astronauts and mechanical emissaries.

They are also places where children can be helped to acquire a strong foundation in the knowledge and skills needed for school success. Generate a panorama Restriction of maximum width to 14400 Pixel (= horizontal extension 360° with zoom factor 2) 14.05.2011 - In recent days, the requests have increased massively to this application. As a consequence, sometimes there result long times of waiting for the panoramas to appear. Very broad panoramas bind disproportionate resources. Therefore I have restricted the maximum width of the full panoramas to allow the fairest possible sharing of the limited resources.
