Google X, the group of minds behind the company's self-driving car and its Google Glass device, is taking a couple more projects under its wing.

Project Titan, much like the company's Project Loon venture, aims to bring Internet access to places that don't have it. Instead of using a network of Internet balloons, that's what Project Loon does, Project Titan relies on solar-powered drones that can stay in the stratosphere for about five years.
