Musk's SpaceX send-off, originally scheduled for Saturday but now pushed back to Sunday morning to allow for more testing, could carry with it a spectacular plume of rocket exhaust back-lit by the sunrise, just as it did after a previous launch on December 22. A memo from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base confirmed the launch, which is scheduled for Saturday, February 17 at 6:17AM PDT (Sunday, February 18 at 1:17AM AEDT).
Some 4 425 satellites will orbit the planet at a height of roughly 1 126km and another 7 518 satellites will orbit the Earth from a distance of 321km. SpaceX's application - along with those of other satellite companies seeking licenses or access to the US market for non-geostationary satellite orbit systems - involves one such innovation.
FCC chairman Ajit Pai proposed that the agency approve the SpaceX's application. "Satellite technology can help reach Americans who live in rural or hard-to-serve places where fibre optic cables and cell towers do not reach".
The U.S. government is working to try to bring high-speed internet access to rural areas that lack service.
This flight is extra special: The Hawthorne-based rocket-builder plans to deploy two experimental communications satellites on the flight.
By 2022, SpaceX predicted - to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) - that: "Once fully optimized through the Final Deployment, the system will be able to provide high bandwidth (up to 1Gbps per user), low latency broadband services for consumers and businesses in the United States and globally". With the trio operating in concert, operators should see an increase in capacity, with a much higher efficacy in initial data acquisition. The company targets a full-capacity network dubbed as "Constellation" by 2024. SpaceX ultimately intends to put some 12,000 broadband satellites in low Earth orbit - and Sunday's payload will mark the company's first stab at realizing the dream. SpaceX also must access to part of the radio spectrum, which is the range of airwave frequencies that will be used to send the internet down from space. The geostationary satellite network will constantly orbit around the Earth and could provide internet signal to virtually any spot on Earth at all times. If all goes well with both PAZ and the Starlink prototypes, SpaceX will be one huge step closer to being able to provide truly universal, affordable, and high-quality internet. Further, organizations wiz Aviation, Shipping, First-responders use this reliable broadband satellite for reliable connectivity. Despite the enormous costs that would arise in implementing a project on "the distribution space of the Internet", many companies have begun to invest their efforts in development of similar programs - for example, competitor SpaceX, Boeing, and British project OneWeb.
