Space X Starlink Satellites

SpaceX held a Starlink send off on Monday, sending 22 satellites into space. The Falcon 9 rocket took off from Vandenberg Space Power Base in California at 7:30pm Pacific. SpaceX’s past day for kickoff was set for Saturday, however it was pushed back because of the end of the week storm movement. This is the fifteenth trip for the principal stage supporter supporting this mission. SpaceX has a Starlink constellation of satellites circling Earth around 340 miles up, transported by the organization’s rockets. The Starlink network is intended to convey rapid web anyplace all over the planet.

This is going to be interesting to see how they are going to get the latency down to 20ms like they want it to be. Because they are getting so much backlash for the amount of satellites already being launched. I hope that in the near future we can use Starlink in manner like we use fiber at home, and as well as on our mobile devices. The mobile aspect is coming sooner then you think, as Starlink has entered a partnership with T-Mobile to provide them with internet connection from the Starlink satellites. With that being said T-Mobile will become the first consumer cellular company to offer Starlink satellite connections and I can’t wait to see what the requirements will be for the devices that will accept the data uplink. As well as what will the download speeds look like while on Elon’s Starlink network.

We will keep you posted if and when new details emerge.
