In this picture provided by Project Loon, internet service for parts of Maria stricken Puerto Rico was being launched to the stratosphere on October 18th. This a project of google's parent company Alphabet and is now giving AT&T customers with a 4G handsets basic internet access, text and e-mail.
Another Loon Balloon was launched from Puerto Rico earlier this year. It took 12 days to direct it through the air currents to get it to Peru. From there it spent 14 weeks aloft, ascending and descending more than 20,000 times to catch currents to keep it in the airspace above providing internet service after the flood disaster.
