Worldwide server feeding data, 3D modeling

Didn't Google and NASA enter into an agreement to do this?

The only agreement between Google and NASA that I am aware of is discussed in this press release. http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2006/dec/HQ_06371_Ames_Google.html

Doesn't seem that real-time mission control display data is part of their immediate plans.

Ken, Thanks for your reply. Guess I was reading too much into paragraph two of RELEASE: 06-371. As soon as decent tracking programs were available utilizing keplarian data NASA developed the real-time mission control displays that utilize telemetry data only NASA has access to. Us lifetime space nuts can only hope!

Thanks, Mike
