$10B post money valuation
SpaceX confirms $1 billion funding round with Google | The Verge
That's awesome. I really love seeing "Silicon Valley"-type innovation and disruption in the most unlikely of sectors.
Happy for SpaceX.. Not a fan of Google as a company, and sad that they now own 10%. An interesting collaboration nonetheless.
Why not a fan of Google? I can't think of any reason to have a negative disposition towards them.
It will be interesting to see how the funding and satellite venture play out. It's not really a move I expected from SpaceX, but I'm not entirely surprised by it either. I could see it being really big or fading away; I can't really predict this one. I kind of feel the same way about this as I do about Tesla battery swap.
I take this to mean that Google is really buying the internet satellite plan by collaborating with SpaceX.
Maybe Google wants to get into the autonomous rocket market, except that all rockets are already pretty much autonomous nowadays.
A good primer from 2010:
Soon we will see Google enabled Space X rockets park themselves on a drone ship!!! :love:
... oh, wait.
Judging from the other videos on their channel, I sense a little bit of... sensationalism in their "journalism."
