You won’t find a Starbucks coffee shop there (yet), so why has Google invested in these extraterrestrial projects? According to Google’s Tiffany Montague, they “want to make the universe searchable”.

I won’t worry about Google’s designs on the universe until Google CEO Larry Page proclaims from a Googleplex balcony that Google “needs breathing room”.
