I really doubt Google would bother with the expenses of a complex and costly space launch.

I think Google will just continue to release web-based and web related applications, as well as a few windows and linux based apps. They have several executables already. One of which is to notify Gmail users of new mail.

It was photochopped, that was just to provide a laugh. LOL you believed it!

Back to the topic on hand, I think Google would be severely damaged if it went from a powerful search engine, mail account provider to an OS straight out. Despite reading the pro's and cons of this i, I do think that it is not Google's goal to have an OS.

I think though what we are seeing here is just a little hand at what Google can do. I do think a Browser would be the next logical step before if they ever to consider an OS.

Known as "Luna/X," the new command architecture is impervious to radiation, low gravity, absolute zero temperatures and airless environments. Even the most intricate scripts coded in Luna/X can withstand the harsh conditions of lunar operation for months, if not years.


PS: the moon really is made of cheese!
