    Is it really that ridiculous? They have already stated an interest in a privately funded moon base project and future mars base projects.They are among other things providing the prize money for the Google Lunar X Price.

    Oh, and here's another Google thing:

    Speaking of April's fools, I really liked two of the four Blizzard ones:

    I didn't see that one. They did a really good job on that! I'm sure it upset a lot of people when they figured out it wasn't real, haha.
