Google’s Project Loon continues development from an audacious goal to use balloons to provide Internet service to areas traditionally un- or under-served to being a reality that provides service to 2 out of 3 Internet users. In their latest video about Project Loon, the Google team talks about how they have been working to ramp up their capabilities for a mass deployment.

Some of the challenges discussed in the video include things like the manufacture and launch of the balloons. When the project first start, producing a working balloon was a long process that frequently involved hunts for leaks. Now, the company is able to produce a functional balloon in a matter of hours. Likewise, Project Loon has improved the launch schedule from one balloon per day to a dozen.
