    This is just a little piece of history to remind you all of how fortunate we are to have SpaceX AND Tesla Motors... Without that $220 Million its anyone's guess on whether or not these companies would exist today.

    Heres the link to the 2002 (yes, I know..) article

    Zip2 used to Host The New York Times... interesting.
