Such an enjoyable episode of StarTalk!
Google just showed off some pictures of its brand-new Amsterdam office.
Google's offices tend to draw inspiration from the city they're in, like a Stanford-like campus for its California headquarters and a loft space for the Chelsea offices in New York.
The Amsterdam office features stroopwafel ceiling tiles.
There are also lots of fun little touches, like neon signs and exposed brick.
And, of course, a foosball table. Are you legally allowed to have a Google office without a foosball table? We'll consult our lawyers and get back to you.
Weirdly, some of the meeting rooms are in these mobile-home-type structures within the office, complete with lawn chair and grill.

Love this song! Even better with the piano guys!
Astronaut Luca Parmitano was about 44 minutes into a space walk in July 2013 when he felt something that shouldn’t be there—water inside his helmet and on the back of his head. He and partner Chris Cassidy continued their work on EVA-23 (EVA means extra-vehicular activity, which is NASA-speak for a space walk.) But shortly thereafter, water moved to Parmitano’s face and went up his nose, and he lost some communication with the ground. That forced the astronauts retreat back into the International Space Station, where they found about a liter and a half of water in Parmitano’s helmet.
This is a big one.
