Google's secret plan to rule world: more satellites!
Not happy with just sharing a satellite, Google wants to launch an entire constellation. O3b, or "Other 3 Billion," is a fund led by Google, Liberty Global, and an investment arm of HSBC. It aims to raise money — $60 million thus far — to establish a 16-satellite network to provide high speed Internet access for people in areas like the Middle East and central Africa. What we want to know: Will Larry and Sergey bring wives Lucy Southworth and Anne Wojcicki to each and every launch?
