Facebook’s Internet drone – level 2
Facebook's solar-powered drone completed its first successful test flight. The drone flew at a few thousand feet for 96 minutes in Arizona.
The company hopes that the drone will help to get Internet to every corner of the planet. The company hopes to have many of these drones that can fly for at least 3 months without stopping and deliver internet access to people.
The company wants to make the drone lighter so it can fly for longer periods. It hopes it will soon break the world record for the longest solar-powered unmanned flight, which is currently at 2 weeks.
