NASA, Google partnership still taking flight
More than two years after forging a partnership that technology insiders hoped would spawn a new era of innovation in Silicon Valley, Google and NASA have few tangible products to show for their collaboration.
But that that doesn't faze Google's managers, who say the goal is to get employees brainstorming and promote the space program - not to create flashy products.
By combining brain power, the partners hope to tackle supercomputing, biotechnology and nanotechnology, the study of extremely small devices.
