Google has launched an air-tastic new project - Project Loon - to provide internet access to rural and remote parts of our planet. And how does it work? By releasing balloons - and these are HUGE balloons, gang - high into the stratosphere!
The plastic balloons, measuring 15m wide and 12m tall, are filled with helium gas and float at an altitude of 20km - that's about twice the height of an aeroplane flight! Signals bounce back and forth between the huge balloons, providing internet access to people back on Earth below. Cool, huh?
So far, 30 balloons have been released to test if we can one day have a global network circling our planet. Let's see if the future of the internet is high in the sky!
