What to do when you have too much money
Paul Allen seems to have an interest for natural science, and knows how to get some fun out of all his wealth. A while ago, we heard about him funding the next phase of SETI, but this is not the only project he has funded. He is a sponsor for one of the X-Prize (first private venture to 100km altitude with a 3-person reusable spaceship) competitors, is setting up the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame in Seattle, and is funding research towards providing a publicly available human Brain Atlas. All in all an impressive collection of science and fun on the edge.
