Space aficionados will know that today marks the anniversary of the first manned Moon landing on 20 July 1969. To celebrate this fact, Google has knocked up a quick Moon map showing the landing sites of all six US jaunts.

One the other hand...

Thanks to all those readers who have written in to ask that we reinstate the Google "u" in honour of this far better effort. You can decide for yourselves.
