More Space Content for Google Earth from Wirefly X PRIZE Cup

X PRIZE CupThis continues a series of stories about a wealth of new space-related content for Google Earth from the Wirefly X PRIZE Cup which is an outdoor space exposition hosting several competitions for some major prizes (including over $2.5 Million from NASA) for space related technology. The event is being held on October 20-21, 2006 (see here for details) at the Las Cruces Airport in New Mexico. It will be a great educational event with rocket launches, NASA exhibits, jets, and more. To help promote the event I have been helping put together some space-related Google Earth content.
New Mexico Space Trails in Google EarthSince the event is being held in New Mexico, the Department of Tourism for the state is releasing a collection of placemarks which show the locations of interesting places which have some tie to space. Contained are placemarks showing the location of ancient indian petroglyphs recording a supernova, remote areas where Apollo astronauts trained for moon missions, locations of secret labs such as Sandia Labs and Lawrence Livermore Laboratories, the famous Roswell UFO site, and more. See the X PRIZE Cup web page on the New Mexico Space Trails.
