Facebook Creates Team to “Beam” Internet Everywhere on Planet | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the company is launching a Connectivity Lab, a team of scientists tasked with bringing the Internet to remote places on the planet using new techniques, including beaming it down from the sky.

Zuckerberg said the team of about a dozen people includes scientists in the field of aeronautics and communications. Facebook has hired new employees from organizations like NASA, the National Optical Astronomy Observatory and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Facebook also said it hired five people from Ascenta, a UK-based company that developed the world’s longest-flying unmanned solar aircraft.

The Connectivity Lab is part of Zuckerberg’s previously announced Internet.org initiative, which aims to bring connections to parts of the planet where the Web is unavailable. He said achieving that goal will mean inventing new technologies, and said the lab will work with drones, satellites and lasers.
