The Capanina Project. Actually this should be filed under ‘random press releases I have received this week which don’t say much at all really.’

 Solar Power Aircraft Will Make Broadband Available To All…“The opportunities offered by HAPs..[high altitude platforms]..are exciting as they could deliver broadband connections which are 2,000 times faster than a traditional modem and 200 times faster than today’s ‘wired’ ADSL broadband. HAPs are also easier to maintain than satellites as they can be periodically brought back to earth for upgrades and maintenance.”

    1) NASA does not endorse or sponsor any commercial product, service, or activity.

    2) The use of the NASA name, initials, any NASA emblems (including the NASA Insignia, the NASA Logo and the NASA Seal) which would express or imply such endorsement or sponsorship is strictly prohibited.
