Hulu plans to move its customer support headquarters to a new facility in Texas later this year, pending final lease negotiations as well as tax-incentive agreements and approvals from the City of San Antonio, reports Variety. The company projects that it will employ 500 workers at the location by 2018.
NASA leaders said they may count on commercial help to explore the solar system over the next two decades, reports the Wall Street Journal.
