Mark Zuckerberg meets Pope Francis; presents him with model drone
Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are in Rome and they met Pope Francis on Monday [August 29] at the Vatican.
They went bearing gifts; a model of the Aquila drones that Facebook is developing to beam internet to places without connectivity.
“We told him how much we admire his message of mercy and tenderness, and how he’s found new ways to communicate with people of every faith around the world,” the Facebook CEO wrote in a post.
“We also discussed the importance of connecting people, especially in parts of the world without internet access. We gave him a model of Aquilla, our solar-powered aircraft that will beam internet connectivity to places that don’t have it.”
