Of that money anyway, this startup now has the research facilities at NASA Ames Research Center campus, Mountain View. Page called as a major donor.
Besides Zee.Aero, Page has financed other startup named Kitty Hawk. The company he funded approximately a year ago. The head office of startup is only half a mile from his office Zee.Aero.
