Did you know that you can explore Mars in Google Earth?  While it might seem odd to have another planet to check out in Google Earth, Google has paired with NASA to offer this opportunity.  You can search for famous landmarks on Mars like  Olympus Mons or the Face on Mars.  Check it out here.  To access the Mars mode, download Google Earth and open it up. In the toolbar section on top, click on the small icon resembling the planet Saturn and select Mars.
