First there was Google Earth, next came Google Mars. With the new deal signed by NASA and Google, that “establishes a relationship to work together on a variety of challenging technical problems ranging from large-scale data management and massively distributed computing, to human-computer interfaces,” we will expect to see the wealth of data that NASA has accumulated being shared out in the public via Google.
To quote verbatim what particular data from NASA that will be shared with Google:
Real-time weather visualization and forecasting, high-resolution 3-D maps of the moon and Mars, real-time tracking of the International Space Station and the space shuttle will be explored in the future.
incorporating agency data sets in Google Earth, focusing on user studies and cognitive modeling for human computer interaction, and science data search utilizing a variety of Google features and products.
aside from that:
NASA and Google also are finalizing details for additional collaborations that include joint research, products, facilities, education and missions.
Definitely, assignments and other schoolworks level of quality and ease of completion will jump up a notch 😀
