Google Space?

1:00 PM -- In a meeting of (geek) minds of boggling ramifications, Google has annnounced plans to move into a million-square-foot facility in NASA's Silicon Valley Ames Research Center.

The space agency and the search giant also promised to collaborate on "several technical research projects, including large-scale data management, massively distributed computing and encouragement of the entrepreneurial space industry," according to multiple reports (here's just one).

This can mean only one thing: Having raised approximately 15 trillion dollars in its IPO, set about encircling the planet with its own private Internet, and begun the battle to master the telephony market – having, in short, conquered the Earth (as well as its Moon) – Google has decided our paltry planet is not big enough to hold it, and set its sights on deep space.

Stay tuned for,, and And watch their space dust.
