Google Earth 5.0 is out: Mars 3D, Oceans, Video/Audio Recording



























The new version of Google Earth is out. And contains LOTS of new features:
  1. Mars in 3D is spectacular
  2. Historical images are simply brilliant and hint at something we could really use in astronomy
  3. Oceans are cool, but I am not too interested in that, even if I can see how oceanographers might be :)
  4. Video and Audio recording of tours! Sharing does not seem to be enabled yet, but I bet at some point we'll be able to export to YouTube!
  5. Sadly, still the projection problems at the poles have not been fixed!
All in all a great improvement!
