[Video] Zuckerberg’s Internet Plane About To Take Off!

Facebook’s goal is to bring internet to the WORLD! (Who cares about food and clean water right Zuckerburg?) This isn’t new information though, this project first kicked off with the project internet.org which saw Facebook give internet connected mobile devices to remote places around the world.

The latest internet stats for 2015 are 46.1% of the world population now use the internet and Zuckerburg wants to change that. “We still have a long way to go in this work, but we are excited by our early progress,” Facebook said in a blog post.
The opportunity this presents to the future of the world could be revolutionary. Whilst Zucks isn’t exactly solving an important world issue directly, access to the internet will mean people will be able to learn about new technologies or ‘hacks; to help get clean water to suffering communities, help them earn money by starting online businesses or help get funding and volunteers into area’s really in need because new stories will be shared with the world.

I’m excited to announce we’ve completed construction of our first full scale aircraft, Aquila, as part of our Internet.org effort. Aquila is a solar powered unmanned plane that beams down internet connectivity from the sky. It has the wingspan of a Boeing 737, but weighs less than a car and can stay in the air for months at a time. We’ve also made a breakthrough in laser communications technology. We’ve successfully tested a new laser that can transmit data at 10 gigabits per second. That’s ten times faster than any previous system, and it can accurately connect with a point the size of a dime from more than 10 miles away.This effort is important because 10% of the world’s population lives in areas without existing internet infrastructure. To affordably connect everyone, we need to build completely new technologies. Using aircraft to connect communities using lasers might seem like science fiction. But science fiction is often just science before its time. Over the coming months, we will test these systems in the real world and continue refining them so we can turn their promise into reality. Here’s a video showing the building of Aquila.
