It be interesting if they made something like Google Maps for accessing the night sky. It could be a huge compilation of pictures take from Hubble and many other telescopes. You would be able to zoom way in and get a closer look at things.

However, I believe many images weren't taken in the visible spectrum, so the telescope folk colorize them so they are viewable and look nice. That might make it difficult to stitch everything together.
