I’ve been exploring Space (NASA) landmarks in Second Life recently and found many great places on my adventures around Second Life. Check out my Space in SL Flickr set. from space rockets to space launches and more. I believe there are Space Google Videos filmed in Second Life, go and check them out too. I found a cool Virtual Space Shuttle Launch Video on secondlifeupdate.com, which is just AWESOME!. Don’t forget you can join Space and NASA groups in Second Life by clicking on Search > Groups > Join. Have fun!
