Facebook’s Internet drone – level 1

03-08-2016 07:00

Facebook's drone finishes its first test flight. It is successful. The drone flies for 96 minutes in Arizona. 

The company hopes that the drone will bring Internet to all people. The company hopes to have many of these drones. It wants drones that can fly for 3 months without stopping.

The company wants to make the drone lighter. Then it can fly for longer periods. The company hopes that it will soon break the world record for the longest solar-powered flight. At the moment, the record is 2 weeks.

Difficult words: flight (when something flies), break the record (be better than the last record), solar-powered (with energy from the sun).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
