Google scientist Astro Teller recently allowed unprecedented access to Google X, the company’s secretive think tank and innovation lab. Located at the edge of the Google Campus, the lab houses the Rapid Evaluation Team – a unit charged with testing the most promising ideas cooked up despite a high probability of failing.
