And Facebook is also advanced in its plans to flight networks of solar-powered aircraft, with a wingspan bigger than commercial jets, that will circle for three months at a time above the flight path of ordinary aircraft, and provide Internet access to everyone on earth.
These are the MTPs - the Massively Transformative Purposes - that are driving the new tech giants. Yes, their plans will increase their business and make their markets bigger, but they will also benefit all mankind.
