    Yes, Google has launched a technology laden helium balloon on 15th June 2013. The scientists believes that it could change global communications forever. This huge balloon will be launched at almost 20 kilometres into the stratosphere which would be more than twice the height at which commercial jets fly. On the other hand the balloons are equipped with antennae that can connect to the internet - either from a ground station or via another balloon - and beam it down to Earth at speeds similar to today's 3G network. This creates a chain, or network, of balloons. People on the ground are set up with a special antenna that will connect to the internet of any balloon overhead.
