Google implements a Reverse Total Perspective Vortex

Stars, originally uploaded by xrrr.

I have just downloaded the new 4.2 version of Google Earth. It now allows you to investigate the sky at night above your current location.

Whist zooming into the infinity of space and rediscovering my fascination with 'space stuff' I realised that Google have actually implemented a Reverse Total Perspective Vortex. I can point Google Earth at my house and then flip to sky mode and see the 'pure unimaginable infinity of space'. It is a good job it is a Reverse Total Perspective Vortex or else Google might have inadvertently created 'the most horrible torture device to which a sentient being can be subjected'!

Use with caution folks!
