Just a quick link here to the latest nifty map found by the good people at the Strange Maps blog.
This awesome map shows the paths taken by the first men on the moon. Apparently they didn’t walk very far — barely the distance of a baseball field. This map compares their amblings with a major league ball diamond (and no — there wasn’t already a ball field set up on the moon, with a crater for home plate!).
Click the map for a bigger version. Now that I think about it, I probably wouldn’t have gone too far on that landing, either…
This map reminds me — I’ve got some writing to do on that map-related book. Later!
