Google to Collaborate with NASA
Google will shift to NASA Research Park and collaborate with NASA in a variety of areas including supercomputing.
San Francisco Chronicle has reported that Google is going to lease up to one million square feet of space at the NASA Research Park at Moffett Field in Mountain View.
The report said Google will collaborate with the space agency in a variety of areas such as large-scale data management and supercomputing.
According to SF Chronicle report, Eric Schmidt, NASA’s chief executive officer, said, “Google and NASA share a common desire to bring the 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”.
G. Scott Hubbard, NASA Ames Center Director, said in the press release, “Our planned partnership presents an enormous range of potential benefits to the space program”.
A few examples mentioned by Scott Hubbard include: bio-info-nano convergence, improved analysis of engineering problems, Earth, life and space science discoveries from supercomputing and data mining, and bringing entrepreneurs into the space program.
Google is employing on an average 10 people per day and it needs a bigger campus for its activities. Now there are over 4000 people working for Google in the Mt. View Head Office.
