Google shows interest in NM company

MORIARTY, N.M. (KRQE) – First Facebook and now Google is apparently interested in buying Titan Aerospace in Moriarty.

Titan makes large solar-powered drones.

Both Google and Facebook are in a high-altitude race to connect the entire world to the internet by using drones.

Last month Facebook reportedly planned to spend $60 million to buy Titan.

But then the social media giant bought a UK based drone maker for $20 million.

No word yet if that means the deal between Titan and the social media giant is over or if Google’s interest will now start a bidding war.
