Google looks to outer space

A memorandum of understanding signed by NASA and Google last November laid out four general areas in which the company might collaborate with space agency scientists: large-scale data management; connecting smaller computers for supercomputing; converging nanotech and biotechnology; and helping launch private commercial space travel. Google also might help develop nanotech information systems to lighten space crafts so they can launch more easily and cheaply than heavier systems.
