Learnt something new about $GOOG today. They have a shell company, Planetary Ventures LLC that they sometimes use for real estate transactions. Turns out that NASA recently announced Planetary Ventures LLC as the preferred lessee to rehabilitate the historic NASA owned Hanger 1 in Silicon Valley.

It also turns out that Planetary Ventures (Google) back in 2011 proposed building a 57 acre campus at Stevens Creek which includes a private bridge crossing. With a name like "Planetary Ventures" and a unique relationship with NASA. It begs the question, along with Google X Labs what will we see out of Google next.

Planetary terraforming, mining. In some respects it's a little scary that so little is known about a company so big, and how wide it's operations are, but on the flip-side the technological advances to come are potentially quite exciting.
