  1. the heavens are only a few mouse clicks away with google's latest free tool: a new feature in google earth, the company's satellite imagery-based mapping software, allows users to view the sky from their computers. the tool provides information about various celestial bodies, from stars to planets, and includes imagery from the hubble space telescope and other sources. it also allows users to take virtual tours through galaxies, including the milky way.
