A New Age of Exploration on Google Maps
The National Geographic are celebrating their 125th year in a joint project with Google called A New Age of Exploration.
The project is "bringing together legendary explorers, a new generation of dynamic young researchers, and scientists in extreme environments around the world for a lively conversation with public participants ushering in A New Age of Exploration."
At the heart of the project is a Google Map that has been created to explore and celebrate the work of the featured researchers and scientists. You can also hangout with Robert Ballard, James Cameron, Jane Goodall, and the other explorers on the National Geographic's Google+ page tomorrow (Sunday, January 13), at 1 p.m. ET (6 p.m. UTC) in a live Hangout on Air.
