Thank you +Josh Rogner for your question about the balloon planning algorithms.  Our team had the same question at the start of the project: can balloons that are constantly moving around in the stratosphere provide stable Internet coverage to people on the ground?  To explore this question, Dan, one of our Rapid Evaluators, created a simulation that uses hypothetical balloons and real-world wind data.  In his model, areas with no coverage appear dark blue, while areas with good coverage are light blue.  The results have been promising.
