    The drone technology described in this diary is a replacement for extremely expensive communication satellites at a fraction of the cost, perhaps a fraction of the environmental damage of thousands of space launches leaving all sorts of nasty pollutants in the upper atmosphere, and a technology-jump that parts of the less-developed world already experience, like cell phone networks where copper wire networks were never built.

    It wouldn't surprise me at all if people from these parts of the world wound up being involved with developing and operating their own commo drones, the tech involved in such matters is certainly cheaper and more available than space launch technology.

    Thanks for posting the interesting diary, even tho we have different conclusions about the matter.
