They seem to have united for a good cause, FACEBOOK'S and Google's founders have cast aside their professional rivalries and teamed together to introduce a reward called the "Breakthrough Prize" for science.
Apparently, this reward is double the value of the Nobel prize.
Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, and Google co-founder Sergey Brin and his wife Anne Wojcicki have come together to launch the Breakthrough in Life Sciences Award, and the prize is worth $3 million.
"Our society needs more heroes who are scientists, researchers and engineers," Zuckerberg said. "We need to celebrate and reward the people who cure diseases, expand our understanding of humanity and work to improve people's lives...At $3 million per prize, it's the largest prize for this work in the world. I'm hopeful this serves as a blueprint for prizes and philanthropy in other fields as well."
