Answer:
Keyhole inc. (first logo) had a product called Earth Viewer. The company name was in homage to the USAs Key Hole series of Reconnaissance satellites (Pictured, KH 4B). Earth Viewer and Key hole were bought by Google, and we now know it as Google Earth.

  4. Connect: “Keyhole”

    Google Earth logo and reconnaissance satellites, I think it’s ‘Corona’. Google Earth was acquired from a company called ‘keyhole’ (they had the product under the name ‘Earth Viewer’). Keyhole Inc. was bought by Google and renamed this application as Google Earth. Keyhole Inc. was a tribute to the reconnaissance satellites which were widely used in the 70’s, 80’s

    The Corona spy satellites of the US military, developed during the cold war to spy on the dirty commies.

    However, this led to some phenomenal development in space imaging technology… leading to consumer services like Google Earth and others.
