Can you believe that Google Earth has been around for a full decade now? To celebrate this milestone, Google unveiled a pair of striking new (and expanded) features to the planet virtualization system on Monday. The first is Voyager, which available on the desktop edition. It's designed to help you pick out and explore the coolest and newest imagery from around the world. These are organized into five categories: Street View, Earth View, 3D cities, Satellite imagery updates, and Highlight tour.

Additionally, the Earth View image collection (albeit not technically a new feature) is also getting a sizable update. Google announced that it will expand the library to include more than 1,500 stunning landscapes from every continent. What's more, you'll be able to access all of these images from either the Chrome extension or a web gallery.
