Making an Internet for Everyone
According to the latest calculations, for every person on Earth who has access to fast, affordable internet, there are two people who don’t. Google is working on a plan to change that.
A Network of Balloons
Project Loon proposes internet service provided by a network of balloons that hang in the air over 60,000 feet up – well above commercial air traffic. The research team is currently testing the project in New Zealand
A Lot of Questions
The team hopes to answer questions about ways to keep the balloons in the correct locations, and keeping solid connections with ground stations, as well as legal issues concerning airspace over various countries.
