Are Google’s drones the future of search and rescue? #google #drone

On the edge of the Google campus in Silicon Valley there’s a nondescript building. Until now, what’s inside has remained a secret. I’m about to enter with Nick Roy, one of Google’s employees. “This is a place that not many people without a Google badge get to see,” I joke. “This is a place that not many people with a Google badge get to see,” comes the reply.

No-one has attempted to land on a 10-billion-tonne comet before.
