I admit this post is not real estate related but it's ok to diverge from a theme occasionally.
I was impressed by Google's focus on contributing to technology. They have put up $30 million for the first private team to put an autonomous vehicle on the moon. Sounds like you get bonus points for other cool assignments.
MSNBC covered the release. It is an interesting read.
NASA has plans to make a trip to the moon soon too. It is interesting to see what the private sector can do when compared to NASA.
