Facebook is acquiring Titan Aerospace, a drone maker, for $60 million, according to a report by TechCrunch. The social network is interested in building and using high-flying drones to provide Internet access across the globe, beginning with Africa. Facebook would begin by building 11,000 solar-powered atmospheric satellite drones that can remain in the air for five years without needing to land or refuel.
