Elon Musk’s internet from space: 60 new SpaceX satellites bring US service closer

November 20, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , , ,

Elon Musk’s SpaceX on Monday launched 60 more Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit, bringing the company’s Starlink satellite broadband internet service closer to its planned mid-2020 go-live date for the US and Canada.

The Monday launch of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, is one of six more launches required to deliver coverage to North America. It was the second Falcon 9 launch carrying a payload of 60 Starlink satellites.

SpaceX launched the first 60 “production design” Starlink satellites in May, representing a small fraction of the 12,000 the Federal Communications Commission has approved Starlink to operate in space. Starlink may one day have as many as 30,000 Starlink satellites in operation.
