SpaceX launches the first 60 satellites of its internet network

In the early hours of Friday, SpaceX launched the first 60 Starlink salites. This is a project that aims to provide internet service from space, especially to places that are not yet accessible and affordable.

After two failed attempts last week, the Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched this Thursday at 10:30 pm (03:30 pm in Lisbon). The launch took place in Cape Canaveral, California. About an hour later, 227kg satellites were launched into orbit at an altitude of 550km from Earth.

These satellites will be supported by the Hall thrusters, and their energy will be extracted by a single solar panel. This will form a network (Starlink) capable of providing fast and affordable internet services across the globe.

SpaceX wants to launch 12,000 Starlink satellites by mid-2020

These are the first 60 satellites out of 12,000 that SpaceX intends to take into orbit by mid-2020. According to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, when 800 Starlink satellites are in orbit, the service will have "significant operational capacity." At 1000 satellites, SpaceX is already making the project "economically viable".

Everything will depend on the success of this first mission, but the goal of SpaceX is to make three to seven more releases this year. Some of these satellites are likely to fail given the new technology. However, Elon Musk says everything was done to "maximize the likelihood of success."

SpaceX internet plans will start at $ 9.99

The plans proposed by SpaceX in March this year are all we want in terms of value for money. For $ 9.99, the company plans to offer 1000GB monthly traffic at speeds of 10,000 Mbit / s. This would be a basic plan that, by itself, could completely shake the internet market as we know it.

This project aims to take high-speed internet to places where it is scarce or nil. Elon Musk's goal is to begin marketing the service between the end of this year and the beginning of 2020.
