While we’re probably still dozens of years away from actually getting lost in our travels between planets in our neighborhood, that doesn’t mean we can’t start pretending already.
Google Maps was originally created as a way to navigate our own terra firm but has long expanded to ocean depths, volcanoes, and, now, outer space.
Google has just added not a few round objects from our solar system, both planets, moons, and one former planet, so you can live out your space-faring fantasies while companies scamper to make that a thing.
The only reason they’ve so far been limited to Earth is one of convention and practicality.
You don’t usually travel to other worlds.
But Google Maps has long outgrown that limited purpose and has become a tool for exploration, learning, and vicarious adventuring.
