Project Loon Sets up Camp in California
When we last checked in with Project Loon here, they were in New Zealand working out some kinks and setting some records. Since getting back from New Zealand, the Project Loon team has set up shop in California's Central Valley. The team has been busy conducting a series of research flights. As it's been since the beginning, the purpose of their flights is to research various approaches for improving the technology that they are working with. They are working to improve the configuration and battery like of their solar panel power system, the balloon envelope design, their own radio configuration, etc. It seems like they're following a "what can go wrong and how can we fix it?" approach.With each test flight they are able to gather a little more information and use that new info to develop their technology from those results.
