Now this is an excellent project, specially for developing countries. However as it is, right now, this looks like a very costly method. There's Google with their Project Loon too.

Lander Philae is awake – 'Hello' from space

The #Philae lander has reported back on 13 June 2015 at 22:28 (CEST), coming out of hibernation and sending the first data to Earth. More than 300 data packets have been analysed by the team at the DLR Lander Control Center. 

"Philae is doing very well – it has an operating temperature of minus 35 degrees Celsius and has 24 watts of power available," explains DLR's Philae Project Manager, Stephan Ulamec. "The lander is ready for operations." Philae 'spoke' for 85 seconds with its team on ground in its first contact since it went into hibernation.
