According to AFP, Google will put the most useful of NASA's information on the Internet including three-dimensional maps of the moon, weather satellite imagery, and real-time tracking of the International Space Station.
A spokesNASA said that soon every 'American' will be able to experience a virtual flight over the surface of the moon or through the canyons of Mars. Although since this is the Internet we assume he also meant the whole of the world could do this too.
Other parts of the pact will mean that NASA and Google teams will hatch out ideas to computer science problems.
They will collaborate in areas including adding agency data to the Google Earth online mapping program, modelling human-computer interaction, and working out ways to search through more scientific data.
