Earlier this month there were talks of Facebook acquiring Titan Aerospace, which has developed a drone that can stay in the air for five years using solar power.
Fox Business explains that NASA scientists are also helping with the efforts.
"To figure out, OK, how do we, if we have the drone ... how do you beam or get the WiFi connection to people on the ground? ... They're also looking at doing it from satellites from some kind of infra-red laser."
The Guardian talked to an Internet.org engineer, who explained: "In suburban environments, we are looking at a new type of plane architecture that flies at 20,000 metres, at the point where the winds are the lowest. It's above commercial airlines, it's even above the weather. They circle around and broadcast Internet down but significantly closer than a satellite."
As for now, there's no timeline on when those involved hope to get this thing off the ground, but CNN reports there's a huge market, as about two-thirds of the world's population doesn't have access to the Internet.
