No, seriously, Google really does want to rule the world — and beyond!

Google just signed a deal with NASA.

Seriously.

According to the press release, they’ve signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU; same thing as a Letter of Intent) in which they plan to to “collaborate on a number of technology-focused research-and-development activities that will couple some of Earth’s most powerful technology resources.” This, of course, is separate and distinct from their other plans to rule the world, detailed in the post below.

Areas of planned collaboration include (but are not limited to): “large-scale data management, massively distributed computing, bio-info-nano convergence, and encouragement of the entrepreneurial space industry. The MOU also highlights plans for Google to develop up to one million square feet within the NASA Research Park at Moffett
Field.”

NASA Ames Center Director G. Scott Hubbord says he wants to bring “entrepreneurs into the space program”; Google CEO Eric Schmidt is happy, too, as long as you keep your damn nose out of his business (we kid! He’s an open book!).

The point is, Google just signed a deal with NASA. Its hegemony of the Earth and stars is complete. I reiterate: MARRY ME, SERGEI!
