NASA Takes Google on Journey into Space
“Our planned partnership presents an enormous range of potential benefits to the space program,” said NASA Ames Center Director G. Scott Hubbard.
“Just a few examples are new sensors and materials from collaborations on bio-info-nano convergence, improved analysis of engineering problems, as

joint efforts will benefit both organizations, the real winner will be the American public,” he added.
