Google Researchers developed a method to provide internet connectivity to the people, especially in those belongs to remote parts of the world using a Network of balloons placed in the stratosphere.
What is special in that case means, Google has much more control over where its balloons reach and making it possible to focus on a specific region, rather than watching all over the globe.
What is Project Loon?
Huge helium filled balloons will be launched at altitudes of 20 km above the earth, above the zone where airplanes fly.
The balloons can then act as cell towers to receive and transmit signals.
Solar panels will power these “loons” with their batteries storing up charge for night-time operation.
The balloon’s path will be controlled by changing its altitude, so that it can optimally use wind speed and direction. The altitude will be altered by pumping or releasing air to raise or lower the balloon.
Users will need a special antenna for receiving and sending radio signals to/from the balloon.
