Random Pagan Verse:
“Call it a new religion, then, if it so please your Gracious Majesty; but I confess that I fail to see what you will have gained by so doing, and I feel bound to add that you might easily cause a great deal of misunderstanding, and work a rather stupid kind of mischief. The word does not occur in The Book of the Law.”

-Magick Without Tears, ch.31

Google?s internet-beaming balloons are ready to take off on the next phase of the mission to deliver online access in regions where most people live offline.
The balloons, which transmit high-speed internet signals, will now begin hovering in the stratosphere above Indonesia in an expansion of the two-year-old project.

About 250 million people live in the country composed of about 17,000 islands, although only 42 million have internet access, according to estimates from the CIA.

The project recently became part of the technology lab, Google X, run by Google?s parent company Alphabet.
Alphabet says Projects Loon is striving to get about 100 million currently unconnected people tapped into the vast reservoir of knowledge, entertainment and conveniences available online.
Project Loon is still testing its technology, so there is still no estimate when it will start selling the internet service to households and businesses within range of the balloons.
The internet access will be sold through wireless service providers in Indonesia, where the 319 million mobile phones outnumber people.

Most of those phones do not connect to the internet because users cannot afford data plans, or more frequently, live in remote areas the equipment for high-speed internet access cannot be installed.
Project Loon ultimately aims to deploy hundreds of balloons, which are invisible to the naked eye.
