Google NASA Joint Products
Contest Directions: [ NASA and Google have teamed up to make Google Earth flyovers available for the surfaces of Mars and the moon. Additional Google Earth data will include real-time weather forecasting and visualization, as well as tracking of the International Space Station and space shuttle activity. ]
NASA teaming up with Google to bring the next version of Google Earth is like a street bum teaming up with Bill Gates to bring the next version of Windows. On a tight government budget, NASA became like "down to earth" bum begging for money. Google, on the other hand, is getting into astronomy, and they made their first advances. Google's money is already astronomical.
NASA-Google already talk about possible space missions projects. Given the past mistakes, NASA asked Google to equip each space shuttle console with "I'm feeling lucky" button.
In this contest you are asked to photoshop anything related the Google - NASA partnership. Feel free to show what changes this alliance will bring in forms of products, new logos, space missions, etc.
