Have you ever heard of a Moonshot? It’s the pursuit of not just the 10% better than everyone else, but the 10x better that what exists to date, a reach for glory through science and practicality. It’s not science fiction stuff, but it’s close.

And this is the next Google Moodshot. And it’s called Project Loon. An attempt to have a controlled network of Balloons sitting on the edge of space, delivering solar powered internet to everyone on earth, particularly those people in rural and remote areas, or to help fill in coverage gaps and bring people back online after disasters… Yes. Everyone on EARTH… Eventually. It’s just beginning, with a test in New Zealand, so jump in, follow it, and see where it goes. Is this Moonshot possible?
