Space Map Update!
So last week I toyed around with Google Maps, and put together a visual view of all the NASA Facilities in the United States.
This week, I have researched and added all the major American space museums, or aviation museums where space flight is included in various public exhibits. Also included are space related novelties such as the John Glenn historic site, Space Walk of Fame, and tourist centers attached to NASA Space Centers.
Like any Google Map, you can view the landmarks with the Basic map default, labeled Terrain feature and/or Satellite View.
The second batch includes:
