Thank you Mr. Thomas, my high school Physics teacher! #ThankATeacher  
Many of us are lucky enough to have had some amazing teachers who taught us to question the world around us and do things a bit differently. This Teacher Appreciation Day, we’d like to say thank you to every teacher on Earth.

Another year.... another Zeitgeist :)
From a new pope to a new prince, let's remember the biggest moments of the year with #Zeitgeist2013. Take a look back with us:

qCraft: Quantum Physics In Minecraft

We built the Quantum A.I. Lab to explore the potential of quantum computing, and figure out what questions we should be asking. One question is clear: Where will future quantum computer scientists come from? 

Our best guess: Minecraft. 

Millions of kids are spending a whole lot of hours in Minecraft, not just digging caves and fighting monsters, but building assembly lines, space shuttles, and programmable computers, all in the name of experimentation and discovery. 

So how do we get these smart, creative kids excited about quantum physics? 

We talked to our friends at MinecraftEdu and Caltech’s Institute for Quantum Information and Matter and came up with a fun idea: a Minecraft modpack called qCraft. It lets players experiment with quantum behaviors inside Minecraft’s world, with new blocks that exhibit quantum entanglement, superposition, and observer dependency. 

Of course, qCraft isn’t a perfect scientific simulation, but it’s a fun way for players to experience a few parts of quantum mechanics outside of thought experiments or dense textbook examples.

We don’t even know the full potential of what you can make with qCraft, but we’re excited to see what Minecraft’s players can discover. 

You can download qCraft now as part of the Tekkit, Hexxit, or Feed The Beast Unleashed modpacks, and find out more at www.qCraft.org.

Watching this reminds me what an incredible product Google Maps is. Congrats team.

This was the most incredible demo I have ever seen. Without question.
We are always pushing the limits of our technology, and Project Glass is no exception.  It is designed to help you live in the moment -- even when you’re falling from the sky.

We’re still in early development days, but at Google I/O this morning we wanted to do a product demo in a way we’d never tried before.  We worked with some of the world’s top athletes, combined skydiving and mountain biking, and shared the experience -- through their eyes -- with the world.

If you missed it, we’d love you to be able to see how we put this together, so tune in live tomorrow (weather permitting!) at roughly 11am at https://developers.google.com/events/io/ to check it out.

And you may just catch another Hangout in Air.

Check out San Francisco in the new Google Earth android app- it's beautiful!
Today we are very excited to announce a new way to explore in Google Earth for mobile. We've added full metropolitan areas in 3D in the latest release of Google Earth for Android (http://goo.gl/nCfKF), with an update for iOS coming in the next few days.

Initially this new imagery will be available in Boulder, Boston, Santa Cruz, San Diego, Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Antonio, Charlotte, Tucson, Lawrence, Portland, Tampa, Rome or the San Francisco Bay Area (including the Peninsula and East Bay). We will be adding new cities over the coming weeks and months and aim to have new 3D coverage for metropolitan areas with a combined population of 300 million people by the end of the year. Get a sneak peak at these new cityscapes in our new Google+ album: http://goo.gl/vEr2m

You can also learn more on the Lat Long blog: http://goo.gl/BMGv6. Happy exploring!

Soooo cool. Hadn't even realized how cool until I dug into this. Congrats!
Who here’s been to Trevi Fountain? Now you can visit, anytime, with our new 3D photo tours feature for Google MapsGL. Need a crash course? http://youtu.be/uOFsYp7AtUs
