A report says Facebook is buying an aerospace drone company. "TechCrunch" says the social networking giant will purchase Titan Aerospace for 60-million dollars and use the drones to deliver the Internet to parts of the world that currently don't have access. The solar-powered drones can fly for five years without needing to land.

Facebook is one of the main supporters of the initiative that is trying to bring affordable Internet access to the five-billion people in the world who still lack connectivity.
