Mark Zuckerberg:different approaches to connecting the world is made up of many different approaches to connecting the world. My focus at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week is working with our partners to extend each of these different approaches to help more people connect. I'm particularly excited by our progress on Aquila, our
solar-powered aircraft that will beam internet access into communities from the sky. We're making good progress on the engineering and for months we've been flying a prototype design of our plane every week. Here are some of the latest construction photos ahead of our first full scale test flight. This is the 10.8 foot wide center pod of the overall aircraft, which is 139 feet long. Connecting the world is one of the fundamental challenges of our time. Through we've already connected more than 19 million people in more than three dozen countries. With Aquila and other technologies like satellites and laser communications systems we have a chance to connect many more.
