Titan Aerospace is joining Google

Google has made its first move to deliver wireless internet – all over – with the acquisition of Titan Aerospace, a solar-powered drone manufacturer.
No press release has been issued, but when accessing Titan Aerospace's web page we receive confirmation via this:

“At Titan Aerospace, we’re passionate believers in the potential for technology (and in particular, atmospheric satellites) to improve people’s lives. It’s still early days for the technology we’re developing, and there are a lot of ways that we think we could help people, whether it’s providing internet connections in remote areas or helping monitor environmental damage like oil spills and deforestation. That’s why we couldn't be more excited to learn from and work with our new colleagues as we continue our research, testing and design work as part of the Google family.”

According to a report in Reuters, the drones fly at an altitude of 65'000 feet, can remain aloft for up to five years. Also, they have a wingspan of a whopping 165 foot, almost the same as a Boeing 777 (199 ft).
