SpaceX launched another 60 mini-satellites Starlink

Elon Musk — the founder of the company Starlink

As the portal , SpaceX launched 60 mini-satellites in the second orbital party devices, to provide global Internet coverage. Each of the 26-pound satellites will join the rest of sixty, which was launched by the company in may. Really so useful an ambitious idea about deploying a global network of Internet coverage Starlink or hiding here and its pitfalls? Let's try to understand together in this article.

What is an online from Starlink Elon musk?

Starlink — an ambitious project-American entrepreneur Elon musk, who has set a goal to orbit the Earth thousands of miniature satellites, providing full coverage of the planet high speed and almost free Internet. Chief Executive officer plans to start active operation of a network of satellites in 2020, when the Northern regions of the United States and southern Canada will be able to use the cheap public Internet. Last month Musk used one of them running Starlink orbiting satellites in order to send his first tweet: «Wow, it worked!!»

Despite the fact that the staff of Starlink believe the successful launch of this victory, the ambitious project came under a barrage of criticism astronomers believe that the moons of the project can interfere with telescope during astronomical observations. Due to the fact that Elon musk will use a total of 4425 satellites located in low earth orbit, the device can significantly affect the frequency of security services on a national scale, television and the usual cellular communication. In addition, in the coming years plans to conquer earth orbit I want to implement in practice companies such as Samsung, Boeing , each of which intends to send into outer space from three to five thousand satellites. In other words, the orbit of the Earth can turn into one giant landfill.

In orbit of the planet now floats a huge amount of space debris

Despite the criticism, is optimistic about the future of the project, developing new ways to reduce costs and maximize the depreciation of the Starlink project. So, now the Californian company is in the development stage of the cheaper parts of missiles and krypton engines. According to the Mask, the income Starlink can help SpaceX develop rockets and spacecraft for travel to Mars, which are the main target of an entrepreneur.

According to preliminary estimates, the cost of equipment to receive high speed Internet anywhere in the world will be about USD 200, while the monthly fee for the use of the Internet from the Mask can be up to 50$. Critics believe that the project can receive approval only residents of remote regions of the planet or on military bases located in places where the satellite link. Anyway, the launch of Starlink will soon be able to show the world their true viability in the face of criticism and growing competition for orbital space.
