Google's got a space program?
Yep, Google's got a space program. The NYT has a profile of the woman in charge, Tiffany Montague. Google is not so much thinking in terms of manned rockets with GOOGLE painted on the side, more in terms of stuff like sponsoring a competition to land a robot on the moon that can send back pictures. Or getting more detailed mapping of Mars so we know what's up there (although I think NASA and Microsoft are doing a lot of work on that already). Goofiest of all: Montague is British but talks in an American accent because she really really loved The Dukes of Hazzard.
