X-Games On Your Desk

If you’re anything at all like me, you’re probably wishing fervently you could be at the X-Prize events in Las Cruces, New Mexico this weekend – I’m especially hoping for good results from the space elevator contest. But there is consolation for the geographically and financially challenged in the form of the intarwebs! Thanks to the Google Earth team and Space.com, there’s a whole bundle of excellent Google Earth material available to allow you to explore the site and see the vehicles without having to leave your swivel chair. Okay, so it’s all virtual, but if I can’t experience the games with all five senses in meatspace, this will just have to do.
