The Technology

Project Loon balloons float in the


stratosphere, twice as high as airplanes.
They are carried around the Earth by
winds and they can be steered by rising or
descending to an altitude with winds
moving in the desired direction.
People connect to the balloon network

History of Project
Loon
In 2008, Google considered
contracting Space Data Corp, but didn't
do so
2011, the unofficial development
of the project began under Google
X Labs
14 June 2013, Google announced this
as an official project
16 June 2013, A pilot experiment

How Loon Moves ?


Project loon balloons travel around 20 km
above the
earths surface in the stratosphere.

Winds in the stratosphere are generally


steady and slowmoving at between 5 and 20 mph, and each
layer of
wind varies in direction and magnitude.

The set-up uses software algorithms to

Why
Stratosphere ?
The stratosphere ranges between 10 km and 60 km altitude
on the edge of space.
The extreme altitude of the stratosphere presents unique
engineering challenges:
- Air pressure is 1% of that at sea level
- Temperatures hover around -50c
- A thinner atmosphere
- Less protection from the UV radiation
Suitable because this sphere is having steady

Conclusion
In this century, Google's new invention Google project loon provide a very valuable
help
to poor people by accessing the internet facility. With this, almost all people may get the
ability to know the world of internet and utilize these facility to overcome the barriers.

Give a child a balloon and maybe they'll smile for a day.


Give them one with Wi-Fi and the possibilities, Google hopes, are limitless.
