Google is starting an ambitious project. They will be trying to connect everyone to the Internet with Balloon in their latest project called ‘Project Loon’. It may seems impossible but they have almost everything thought of. Watch their prove of concept.
Basically, they are going to let go balloons fitted with solar panels and networking equipments into the sky (above the 20km height) and relying on the stratospheric winds, they are going to connect these balloons with ground equipments to form a network. Here is the prove of concept.
And before you dismiss this project because everyone nowadays are connected to the Internet, think again. We are really not that connected to some part of the world via Internet. Watch this video to understand.
Hope that they will succeed.
