Question: How Many Starlink Satellites Are Currently In Space?

How Much Will Elon Musk Internet cost?

If all goes well with the beta, Musk has said Starlink will cost about $80 per month.

It won’t be available everywhere, though, at first.

The US and Canada will get the service first.

Eventually, it will be global..

The satellite network is an ambitious endeavor. As SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell has previously said, “it will cost the company about $10 billion or more” to build the Starlink network.

5G is a system that uses lots and lots of small cell phone towers to connect directly to your phone. Meanwhile, Starlink connects to a dedicated receiver on the ground to connect to the satellite. Once the receiver has a connection, it can be connected to a wifi router and provide service. Thats just mmwave 5g.

713 Starlink satellitesWith the 60 fresh satellites launched Thursday, SpaceX has delivered 713 Starlink satellites to orbit on 12 Falcon 9 rocket missions since May 2019. Some of the satellites, including those on the first Starlink launch last May, are being moved to lower altitudes and deorbited.

With anywhere from 4400 to nearly 12,000 satellites needed to complete the three major proposed phases of Starlink, SpaceX will have to build and launch a minimum of ~2200 satellites in the next five years, averaging 37 high-performance, low-cost spacecraft built and launched every month for the next 60 months.

60 StarlinkSpaceX launches 60 Starlink internet satellites, sticks rocket landing. CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX delivered a new batch of its Starlink satellites into orbit today (Sept. 3) and nailed a rocket landing, following a few delays.

They will boost though that is one the Ion Drives are for 🙂 Elon is already working on his satellite pooper scooper….. The ISS is at around 400 and can stay in space for like 14 months without boosting. Since Starlink satellites are at 540, I’d guesstimate like 2-3 years.

100 MbpsStarlink will be capable of delivering internet speeds of 100 Mbps or more with ultralow latency to people all around the world.

No . Starlink does not have cameras. The prototyping allowed for the possibility. The production Starlink satellites do not have cameras.

Starlink satellites will be visible in the sky tonight.

The initial beta test will apply to those located in “high latitudes,” Musk added. To date, SpaceX has said that Starlink service will initially be made available to customers in Canada and in the northern United States in 2020, with additional service expansion to follow to other parts of the world throughout 2021.
