SpaceX is going to launch a test of its service project internet via satellite aboard a Falcon 9 on Saturday.
A week after the launch of its massive Falcon Heavy rocket SpaceX is set to launch another test of the highly anticipated new product. More than three years, we’ve learned about Elon Musk and his rocket company were working on the development of satellites for low cost internet access around the world. The first pair of demonstration satellites for the company’s “Starlink” service will finally be launched into the orbit aboard a Falcon 9, on Saturday, according to correspondence between the company and the Federal Communications Commission.The primary payload for the launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California will be the Spanish government’s “Paz” by satellite, designed to capture images of the Earth down to the mono-counter at a large scale. But there have been unconfirmed reports for several weeks now, from space to industry sources, like NASASpaceFlight.com that a second passenger on the flight is rumored to be the Starlink demonstration of the installation.SpaceX itself has been a relatively low profile on the first album of its Starlink satellite, and the overall program itself. However, a letter from SpaceX to the FCC has made available on the website of the FCC on Monday makes it quite clear what will be aboard the Falcon 9 on its launch on Saturday.
The letter made reference to two satellite called Microsat-2a and Microsat-2b, which will be launched as a secondary payload on the Paz mission. The FCC has granted SpaceX a license in November for the launch of this pair of satellites, in the framework of a mission of control. In its application, the company describes the objectives of testing:”In addition, to show the development of the satellite bus and subsystems, the test program for the Microsat-2a and 2b spacecraft will also validate the design of a phased array and broadband antenna of the communication platform.”overall: SpaceX is testing the high-speed internet satellites that will be launched on Saturday with the Paz satellite.A press release from Vandenberg, said the launch is scheduled for 6:17 p.m. PT, and confirms “several small secondary payloads will also be on the launch of the rocket Falcon 9.” SpaceX has refused to make any official comment.Joy Dunn, the company’s “Senior Manager of the Introduction of New Products,” has been dropped this emoji-based index on Twitter:SpaceX hopes to have its global internet service up and running by the middle of the decade 2020. Other public documents have revealed that the company expects revenue to become an ISP could help fund his vision of a Mars colony.If it works well, the spread of internet memes on the planet Mars could possibly help us pay to get there. It’s almost poetic.
