Internet giant Facebook is reportedly in talks to buy Titan Aerospace, a manufacturer of solar-powered drones that can stay airborne for five years at a time.

The acquisition of the New Mexico-based company would reportedly be part of the Internet.org initiative, of which Facebook is a founding partner, whose goal is to bring Internet access to parts of the world currently not connected to the web.

TechCrunch, first to report on the potential $60 million-acquisition, wrote that the company would start by building 11,000 of Titan’s Solara 60 “atmospheric satellite” model of solar drones, which would provide a a less expensive alternative to an orbital satellite.
