Project Loon balloons float in the stratosphere, twice as high as airplanes and the weather.  They are carried around the Earth by winds and they can be controlled by rising or descending to an altitude with winds moving in the desired direction.  People connect to the balloon network using a special Internet antenna attached to their building.  The signal bounces from balloon to balloon, then to the global Internet back on Earth.
This session will introduce the project, discuss the balloon design and network architecture, then finish by sharing some of our experiences from our June 2013 Pilot Test in New Zealand.
