so secret there is a press release about it.

I think it's great to have drones providing internet access in remote areas. But I fear the power Facebook or google would have with their finger on the trigger - able to shut down an entire region's internet access if for example it wanted to shut down a potential competition.... or ability to unplug an area from the rest of the word. Companies have that ability now. but it's more entailed. but solely relying on this type of system seems like a scary idea.... especially Facebook or google meet with the white house o a regular basis.

Facebook wants solar drone to bring Internet far and wide

At its F8 conference on Thursday, Facebook revealed that it had made a first test flight of an unmanned aerial vehicle. That drone, though, was a small-scale model -- used to test out the aerodynamics -- of a much larger, and solar-powered, one that the company aims to send aloft as it works to bring the Internet to millions more people around the world.

The big Facebook drone, called Aquila, will hold its first test flight this summer, Facebook vice president of engineering Jay Parikh told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Thursday.
