Facebook is testing Solar powered drones that can beam Internet access from above.

The communication was revealed by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg through a facebook post where he said that the social network recently completed its test flight of such drones in the United Kingdom.

Zuckerberg said that the final design will have a wingspan greater than a Boeing 737 but will weigh less than a car.

It will be powered by solar panels on its wings and it will be able to stay at altitudes of more than 60,000 feet for months at a time.

He said such aircraft can help connect the world to the Internet, as they can affordably serve 10 percent of the world’s people who live in remote communities without internet infrastructure.
