Titan Aerospace to work with Connectivity Labs to equip drones with laser beams to transmit internet connectivity to the earth

According to a report, Facebook lately acquired a New Mexico-based startup called Titan Aerospace that builds drones that can fly nearly as high as satellites and stay aloft for about five years. The startup is now working with Facebook to equip drones with laser beams to transmit internet connectivity to the earth. Drones are said to be solar-powered.
