Google Earth Photos of X PRIZE Cup

The Google Earth Blog has a set of photos from the X PRIZE Cup, including prize-related photos on the Lunar Lander Challenge and the Google Lunar X PRIZE, displayed in several different ways:

- in a Picasa photo album
- in a Google Maps display showing where each photo was taken
- in a Google Earth display, also showing where each photo was taken
- in a slide show

I won't go into the details on this prize-specific blog, but you can also see a lot of other space-related content on the Google Earth blog. Recent posts cover Google Earth layers for the Moon and planets, MODIS overlays (MODIS is an Earth remote sensing instrument on 2 NASA satellites), finding comet Holmes using GE, and disaster management imagery of the California fires from various satellites.
