Google CEO Eric Schmidt spoke at a luncheon celebrating NASA’s 50th anniversary today in Washington, and somewhat cockily gave the flailing space agency advice on how they should run their business.
No surprise to hear that Schmidt thinks NASA should be run the way he manages his search/web apps company.
Schmidt’s 40-minute speech also included a demonstration of the search giant’s use of NASA technology in Google’s products, like Google Earth.
Unmentioned (or at least unreported) was any reference to Google’s personal relationship with the space agency — Schmidt, along with Google cofounders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, uses NASA’s Moffett Field to park his private planes.
