Online Gambling Finds New Expansion Possiblities

The internet is the main ingredient of the online gambling industry among many other industries that are totally internet dependant. An article in the U.K.’s Guardian has revealed that Mark Zuckerburg has purchased a Somerset England based designer of solar-powered drones for the sum of  $20m or £12m in order to expand the internet reach using unmanned high-altitude aircraft, satellites and laser beams.

Google is already ahead of the curve when it comes to the race in the clouds for the masses of people living in the remote areas of the planet. Seventy five percent of Europeans used the internet last year as compared to only sixteen percent of Africans.

This is a new race for sub-space that’s being waged in the technology world. The use of unmanned high altitude vehicles to establish an uninterrupted internet signal around the 40th parallel of the Earth's southern hemisphere is Google’s goal. What that could do for the online gambling industry or the social media industry is enormous.

Zuckerburg’s  Ascenta consultancy will join Facebook's not-for-profit venture, with the aim of joining a team of scientists and engineers who formerly worked at the US National Optical Astronomy Observatory and NASA.

 Zuckerberg wrote on his blog, "In our effort to connect the whole world with, we've been working on ways to beam internet to people from the sky," Zuckerberg added, "Today, we're sharing some details of the work Facebook's Connectivity Lab is doing to build drones, satellites … and lasers to deliver the internet to everyone." The CEO was quoted as saying, "Our team is actively working on building our first aircraft now," "Key members from Ascenta, whose founders created early versions of Zephyr, which became the world's longest flying solar-powered unmanned aircraft, will be joining our Connectivity Lab to work on these aircraft. We expect to have an initial version of this system working in the near future."
