I ran across this tonight and thought I would share it here, It is a two billion pixel panoramic image of Mount Everest, you can zoom in and pan around to find all kinds of things like the base camps for example at the bottom.
The first link is to a story about it with links to the image.
The second links you directly to the image.
Enjoy! smile.gif

That is seriously impressive!!
I remember a few years back there was a panoramic picture of the Grand Canyon on the Interwebs done with a 1MPix camera when they first came out!!!
