What does it hope to achieve? Or, to put it more plainly, why does it — along with the rest of us —hanker so desperately to succeed in spite of decades of failure till date? See article.
g Cosmicus - A new start-up company is hoping to ride the crowdsourcing wave to privately raise millions of dollars to fund scientific research, space exploration projects and other educational initiatives. See article.
