Is Google renting NASA airfield to prepare for space exploration?

(CNN) - Another tech giant is headed to a new frontier after seemingly conquering Earth.

Google plans to pay NASA more than one billion dollars to operate this huge hangar in California. It's large enough to hold six football fields!

Google isn't the first tech giant to dabble in space exploration. Having your own rocket is all the rage in silicon valley these days! Jeff Bezos – the man who owns Amazon – started Blue Origin. And there's also Space-X, from the guy who helped launch PayPal and Tesla Motors.

CNN correspondent Tom Foreman joined "The Lead" to discuss Google's new mission.
