Note that the's search engine is NASA's own internal engine.

Sounds like the partnership is off to a great start :)

What's All I get is:

"Server Error in '/' Application.
Runtime Error
Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. "

Siggi Becker points out info from Wikipedia:

<<Gigapan is a collaborative project of Google, Carnegie Mellon University and NASA Ames Intelligent Robotics Group. It is a robotic platform that attaches to a digital camera and some computer software. The robotic platform allows a user to take a photograph, then it will reaim the camera with great precision, to take another photograph. After taking many photos, the software will stitch all of the pictures into a gigapixel (or larger) image.>>
