Facebook launched its first flight of its giant, solar powered, internet delivery drone, which plans to bring relatively cheap internet to remote areas of the world. When testing is finished, a single drone will provide internet coverage for an area of up to 96.6km in diameter, from an altitude higher than any other civilian aircraft. The aircraft has no emissions, and consumes about the same amount of energy as a high end microwave, which in turn should also mean it will have very good range.
