    Experienced hubbers - why am I seeing Google real time visitors from the International Space Station - Control Room?  41 of them at once!  With the circle moving across the map?

    Do they need to know how to fix a leaky toilet?  Have they been invaded by ET's?  Why have they been over Africa for several minutes now?

    I've had visitors from the white house before, but this one is new.

    Help!

    You should watch the video about Google Nose.  Pretty amusing the lengths google goes to for April Fools.

      lol  lol

      Did you click the beta button for it on a normal search?  Just do a search and sure enough; there's the nose(beta) button right there, just waiting to be clicked.  And then click the "try" button!

      Hilarious!

      I lied, too - the space station is now over Australia.  So when it gets above the US will I see 141 visitors from there instead of 41?

          Gotta wonder. 

          But did you click the search button?  You've got to check that one out - I won't reveal the end result.  big_smile

            I did indeed.  Knowing it was an April Fools, did you actually try it?

        I got half way before deciding against it.

          Well, hopefully if it didn't work for you, you clicked the troubleshooting link.  It should explain why not.

      I just found it myself and was going to post a thread about it.  I thought of an April Fools joke, but only after I thought of Google getting hacked first.  Very clever and funny!!!
