Google Mars

Google has rolled out another entertaining map service: Google Mars. Three views are available: elevation, visible, and IR, and you can click to turn on markers for things like crater names, landing sites, and news articles. And you can search for terms like "Olympus Mons" or "Spirit" - differrent color icons indicate landmarks (red), other points of interest (green), and spacecraft (yellow). It's pretty neat! You don't get green cheese when you zoom in all the way though, like you did with Google Moon. ;)
