Web surfers may soon be able to explore the canyons of Mars and could also have a virtual flight over the surface of the moon thanks to a deal announced between Google
,National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Ames Research Centre.NASA and Google said they will work together on a wide range of technical problems and will make NASA’s space exploration work more accessible to the public by means of a series of projects.

One project would let viewers see details of Mars and Earth’s moon in a format similar Google Earth.

Eventually,the second project will aim to offer real-time weather visualisation and forecasting, high-resolution 3D maps of the moon and Mars, and real-time tracking of the International Space Station from the screen of any computer with Internet access.

The collaboration marks another step in a partnership announced 15 months ago when Google unveiled plans to build a 1 million-square-foot campus at the NASA center, located a few miles south of the company’s Mountain View headquarters.
