Google buys Titan Aerospace


— 12:44 PM on April 16, 2014

Earlier in the week, Google bought solar-powered drone maker Titan Aerospace. For those not familiar with Titan, this is what they do:

Titan makes unmanned, solar-powered aircraft that can fly at 65,000 feet and act as “atmospheric satellites,” beaming Internet access to parts of the world that are underserved today by wired and cellular networks.
The immediate thought might be being able to surf the Internet at Gigabit speeds from the most remote locations of the world, but PCWorld hints that Google may have made the acquisition with more humanitarian goals in mind—like crisis relief.
