SpaceX launches first phase of $10bn planet-wide broadband rollout

 

 

 

 

More than an hour later some 270 miles above
, the cluster of satellites – part of a system called
Skynet
Starlink – pushed off from the rocket that carried it to orbit. The individual satellites slowly began to drift toward their singular journeys above the planet. If successful the devices could be turned on sometime tomorrow.

 

 

 

I wonder if Arnie got an invite to the launch laughing.gif

Need a new career ?

 

Hiring for SpaceX's Starlink broadband satellite network is now in full swing

 

 

 

Last month, SpaceX ($SPACEX) launched 60 Starlink satellites from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. This "constellation" of satellites is intended to eventually grow to 12,000 by the mid-2020s to create a space-based Internet communication system.

 

On September 18, 2018, SpaceX was hiring for just one position explicitly dedicated to its Starlink team. Just before the aforementioned launch in May 2019, SpaceX had opened up 29 such positions. In total, SpaceX has opened up 61 job titles across 571 individual job postings for Starlink since September 2018.

 

The current plan is to launch "44 high-performance, low-cost spacecraft built and launched every month for the next 60 months" in order to get 2,200 satellites in orbit in order to support Starlink's FCC spectrum allocation license assignment.

 

I wonder when big brother will step in and take control of all them pesky little satellites. :whistling:
