It's called "Project Loon", as in balloon.  This involves launching solar and wind powered balloons into the stratosphere.  These special balloons communicate with control devices and Internet providers on the ground to deliver Internet to remote areas that are not "connected".  In the stratosphere, winds carry these balloons over a predictable path.

Now that's something to tweet about :)



And that's what's good,
