  • SpaceX to send Thousands of Internet Facility Satellites into Orbit around the Earth
 

SpaceX has a plan which it will accomplish if it can. It wants to send thousands of Internet facility satellites into orbit around the earth in order to bring the amenity to every citizen of the global village.

Elon Musk is simply unstoppable. The billionaire genius wants to send loads of satellites into outer space with the express purpose of bringing Internet facility to all human beings on earth.

Let us not forget that his company, SpaceX wants to colonize Mars and send the first human beings there. The FCC commission laid out in detail Musk’s plans to bring the amenity of the Internet to all inhabitants through launching satellites into orbit around the earth. 

The number of satellites are 4425. They will provide superfast Internet facility. The number that Musk wants to send into outer space is three times the number of satellites that are already present in the vacuum conditions of outer space.

Musk is also the CEO of Tesla Motors. He is known to be one of the most enterprising and intelligent human beings on the face of the planet. 

He announced his intentions for this Net facility via satellite launch last year. The costs will be $10 billion. The initial plans are to launch 800 satellites that will cover the USA only.

Then the plans will include the rest of the world. No deadline has been decided upon for this scheme. Broadband Internet service will be made available for a wide range of humanity in the years ahead thanks to this project spearheaded by Musk.

SpaceX satellites will be in orbit at a distance in space that is about 1150 km and 1275 km from the earth.  Each satellite will be about the size of an automobile. It will also weigh about 850 pounds, NBCNews reported. 

The fine-tuning of this system of satellites in tandem with each other will provide one gigabytes of bandwidth facility for users all over the world. This will be quite an accomplishment and achievement once it becomes a reality.

The speedy variety of Internet will be about 180 times quicker than the average sort of Net facility you encounter today on a mundane level. Both Google and Fidelity have contributed $1 billion to this mission. Besides SpaceX, other agencies are thinking along similar lines as well.
