Google turns its attention to the stars

Google, having brought the earth into the living room, has turned its eye to the heavens to bring the sky at night indoors.More than 250 million people have used Google Earth’s satellite pictures to look at their own homes from space or into their neighbours’ back gardens or viewed weird and wonderful geological features.The internet facility has now been expanded to offer a glimpse of 100 million individual stars and 200 million galaxies as part of the Google Sky initiative.
