Google Maps is tons of fun. Who hasn't sifted through old addresses and locations of childhood innocence? It gets old after a while. But Google Maps could be used for something more sinister.
Much like Area 51 and the Skunk Works, the airstrip at Yucca Mountain has been known about by conspiracy theorists and airplane enthusiasts for years. Its been depicted in television and motion picture. But there weren't any real pictures. Until now.
Thanks to the ever snooping eye of Google's satellites the location of this once secret military instillation has been revealed. It was noticed by online aviation website Flight Global.
With embarrassing pictures of people in their front yard to military secrets Google Maps is showing us a side of ourselves we'd rather not see or be shown.
