Friday Funday Roundup 09.19.08

We had an incredible Friday Funday last week. In addition to it being International Talk Like A Pirate Day, we had a busy day of finding cool space related items in Google Earth and Maps. Here is just a sampling of all the cool stuff we found.

QuarkSpin sent in a great shot of the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and then Snibble followed up by sharing the street view. You can see a bit of the rocket garden in the back.
