Google finds sense of humo(u)r on surface of Moon
The Google has landed
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.
In the process, Google has discovered something approaching a sense of humour. Click here and then zoom right in for the full picture.
That's right: it's humour Jim, but not as we know it. Or at least not as we know it over here in Blighty, and for this reason we are stripping Google of a vowel and downgrading its effort to humor. Nice try, though. ®
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.
