"Google has gone off the deep end: On Tuesday evening, the company published on Google Maps panoramic 360-degree underwater views of six of the world’s most vibrant living coral reefs, including the Great Barrier Reef off the Australian coast.

The views, which show close-ups and zoomable shots of turtles, fish, coral polyps and other marine life, simulating the experience of actually diving and swimming through the underwater forests, may be Google’s most awe-inspiring maps imagery yet, and that’s saying something, given Google’s concerted push this year to bring Web users “Street View” style panoramas of such esoteric places as Antarctica, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center and inside the White House.
