Say hello to Waymo—the next chapter of the Google self-driving car project! Waymo stands for a new way forward in mobility. After 8 years at Google, we're stepping out today as an independent self-driving technology company.

This ride is just the beginning of what Waymo hopes to bring to the world.

When people think of Mormonism today, they think of bright, young, naive, bewildered missionaries in super poor neighborhoods doling out real-world help, advice, and the good word about Joseph Smith. Like any self-respecting space-salvation religion,…
