World Wide Internet, accessible for all!
I've been thinking of a network of satellites that could provide free internet for all (third world is in desperate need) much like the GPS system works.
So before posting the idea to TED Conversations I did some searching, had to look a bit but I found that this project is already under development and will be set to launch in 2015.
It's called COMMStellation, check the Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COMMStellation
and the website http://www.commstellation.com/constellation/index.html
to learn more.
What are your thoughts on this, will you support it, will it be successful?
