Google Earth is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

I just downloaded the new version today. Version 4 I believe. They have rendering for mountains and other terrain - check out the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest, and the Smokey Mountains just to name a few.

The 3D models are awesome too. I got the Statue of Liberty and a few others...in Baghdad someone did models of 3 Hummers outside the Republic Palace, but I was having trouble downloading it.

I could spend days looking at this. Anyone whose computer can handle it should check it out.

You can see some airstrips and things.

Some people have posted pics if you have it set to display them.

Yah, my brother has this program. I looked up my parents house and Time square. It's really cool how close you can go in.

Yeah, I believe most of Area 51 is supposed to be underground so that you can't take satellite photos of it.
