Google has come up with a way to bring internet access to people in the world who can’t afford it or live in a remote area.

Its called “Project Loon” and will launch giant balloons — with network hardware in them — into the sky to act as a special internet antenna.

Those balloons are what will provide the internet access to people on the ground.

The project is still in its pilot testing phase.
