Who’s up for some space exploration? A new software package, Lunar Explorer, allows you to land on and explore the Moon:

Lunar Explorer is a realistic interactive visual representation of the moon using actual data collected by NASA spacecraft and earthbound telescopes. It uses real-time 3D graphics techniques to provide an immersive virtual environment for the user to explore our nearest neighbor in a variety of ways – at a distance, in orbit, or walking on the lunar surface.

Lunar Explorer retails for around $40, which you can order from the website. Hat tip to Alan Boyle’s Cosmic Log, who posted about this.
