Google Earth has launched a new application in which users can get up-close and personal with the moon and learn about space travel and developments that have been made.

Having just celebrated the 40th anniversary of the first lunar landing, Moon in Google Earth offers panoramic views of the first Apollo landing and shots taken by the Apollo astronauts.

The Moon in Google Earth application is especially great for school-aged children who can now travel through space from the comfort of their homes and learn while doing so.
