Every time he pulls the trigger he laughs, which makes me laugh even more.

When we launched Project Loon in 2013 we hoped to answer a single question - could balloons be used to connect people to the Internet? Proving that this was possible in our New Zealand launch then led the team to start asking a much larger question - how can we make this work for everyone, no matter where they are in the world? How do you manufacture enough balloons to be able to provide coverage anywhere in the world and then launch them and control them so that there is always a balloon overhead to provide connection to the user on the ground?

In this latest video Project Lead Mike Cassidy offers a glimpse behind the scenes into how the Project Loon team have been tackling the challenges involved in moving from small scale, one-off launches and tests, to the scale and automation required to make balloon-powered Internet for all a reality.

This is an excellent free, open source project, used in learning settings all over the world, and we recommend it at Picademies. If your setting uses several Pis and you'd like a simpler way to manage software, SD cards and user files, it's well worth a look.

Very relaxing atmosphere. Very nice massage too and the ginger and honey tea after the massage was delightful

The staff and service offered at the TTH is excellent. The only reason i give 4 instead of 5 stars is the parking. The sprawl of the public and staff parking has not been managed well and could be improved. Someone needs to take a hard line with this and improve things.
