Google, NASA Collaborate


NASA and Google have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), that outlines plans for co-operation in a variety of areas, including large-scale data management, massively distributed computing, bio-info-nano convergence and encouragement of the entrepreneurial space industry.
 

Eric Schmidt, chief executive officer, Google, said, "Google and NASA share a common desire – to bring a universe of information to people around the world. Imagine having a wide selection of images from the Apollo space mission at your fingertips whenever you want it. That’s just one small example of how this collaboration could help broaden technology’s role, in making the world a better place."
