I believe its in the mediabuntu repository if you add that you can install it with apt or synaptic.

Also, you can always download it from Google and install it.

This was a post from today:

Added: this link provides instructions to install from synaptic after repositories are enabled. The way to add the repositories to sources.list changed recently. These are the correct procedures.

you could go here:
http://earth.google.com/download-earth.html

and install it manually
But also, the mediubuntu repositories have it in them, just add this to /etc/apt/sources.list for the mediubuntu hardy repos:

deb http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ hardy free non-free
deb-src http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ hardy free non-free
