Google and NASA in a Joint Venture
Guest Entry by Becky Ryan, Bruce Clay, Inc.
Google News just headlined “Google and NASA Partner Up.”
Google and NASA are making giant leaps in technology by partnering up. This venture will create the world largest technical-informational database, making Google yet again a shining star. Google reports they are going to cooperate with NASA and develop a one million square feet of real estate within the U.S. Space Agency – NASA’s Research Park in Silicon Valley. Eric Auchard said, "Google and NASA are to cooperate on research projects such as large-scale data management, nanotechnology, massively distributed computing and the entrepreneurial space industry."
This joint venture is just one more giant leap for Google in just the pass 3 months. If you remember Google opened up its API database of map and satellite imagery. If Google continues forward as planned, they will make the world largest informational database. And all this is in addition to their Secure Access project that sent rumor and speculation throughout the community. Watch out, Yahoo and MSN. What will Google do with this new information and how will Yahoo and MSN top this?
