Google in Space

Google co-founder, Sergey Brin, books a flight on a Russian Soyuz rocket to the International Space Station.

With a $5 million dollar deposit, or investment, Sergey reserved a seat on a future ride. Sergey considered purchasing the worlds largest diamond, or possibly Australia, but finally settled on the space ride. He was quoted as saying, “I was just burning my money in huge piles, but then poor people could see that from a ways off, and it became uncomfortable.”
