This isn't quite 'space exploration', but given the hype of the movie 'The Martian' (which is exciting to watch), NASA has come out with this:

marstrek.jpl.nasa.gov/#v=0.1&x=-12.83203...graticule_sp%2Cfalse

You can track Mark Watney's journey on the surface. Albeit this is the work of science fiction, the maps are highly detailed of the Martian surface, and are real, so just even playing around with it offers you a glimpse of Martian geology and more.

Enjoy!
