研发无人汽车拟发起交通革命、推出Project Loon项目用氦气球普及互联网连接、联合成立医疗保健公司Calico向死亡宣战,这些都是Google雄心勃勃的未来项目之一,大多出自其面向未来的著名实验室Google X。不过据The Information报导,Larry Page 1年前启动了Google 2.0项目的讨论,面向的甚至是比未来还要未来时人类面临的巨大挑战,其中包括建造更加高效的机场和模范城市等。CEO Larry Page为此还提议成立第二个目标更加宏大的未来实验室,Google Y—作为原来的Google X的升级版。这个实验室有可能由另一位创始人Sergey Brin亲自领导(也有说法是他亲自担纲)。

Now astronomers have used the Hubble Space Telescope to uncover a supermassive black hole in a very unlikely place–at the center of one of the smallest galaxies ever discovered.
