SpaceX owner Elon Musk, who is dreaming of setting up a city on Mars, is busy bridging the entire space with his Starlink satellites. Musk’s company has so far launched 2000 satellites into space. Elon Musk plans to launch a total of 42,000 satellites into space. On Tuesday, SpaceX launched 49 Starlink satellites into space with the help of a Falcon 9 rocket. With the help of these satellites, Elon Musk is going to start internet service all over the world.
SpaceX announced on Twitter the successful launch of 49 satellites. It is being told that each Starlink satellite is like a table in shape. Since its launch in February 2018, 2,042 satellites have been launched into space so far. Many of these have also gone bad. Starlink is a group of satellites whose purpose is to supply the Internet for much of the world. This is especially in rural areas where high speed internet has not yet reached.
Starlink satellites can be up to 42 thousand
So far Elon Musk has started internet service on a pilot basis in 23 countries of the world. Elon Musk estimates that the next generation Starlink satellites could have a group of up to 42,000 that would be in low Earth orbit. Space X has permission to send 12000 Starlink satellites in the next few years. At the same time, he is expected to get permission from the International Telecommunication Union of the United Nations to prepare a system of 42 thousand satellites.
It is believed that the speed with which the company is launching the mission can reach 50% of the company’s total satellites by this year. Not only this, according to physicist and former astronomer Aleister Isaacs, 20% of rocket launches worldwide take place in Space X. Most of these are for Starlink, while some are for sending crew or cargo to other customers and the International Space Station.
