SpaceX satellite Internet may appear in 2019

SpaceX satellite Internet may appear in 2019 SpaceX intends to send about 12 thousand satellites to low Earth orbit. Mass vehicles will begin to launch into space in 2019, the company received permission for this in the US Senate. The first prototype of the Internet satellite will fly before the end of 2017, in a few months another will join it. The satellites will use 83 orbital planes, flying at an altitude of 1110-1325 kilometers. During practical tests, the developer’s representatives will be able to determine the degree of effectiveness of the system. If there are no problems, in 2019–2024, 4.5 thousand of such vehicles will be put into orbit. Falcon 9 reusable rocket will deliver equipment. A similar approach will allow the company Elon Mask to significantly reduce the cost of the project. A network of ground stations will be able to receive the signal and distribute the load. Спутниковый интернет от SpaceX может появиться уже в 2019 году In the future, the company intends to launch another 7,500 satellites, placing them even closer to the Earth’s surface – this will increase throughput and reduce signal delay in regions with a high population level (according to forecasts, the signal will be transmitted with a delay of no more than 25-35 milliseconds, now for many satellite providers, this figure is 600 milliseconds). In addition, the mesh network created by Ilon Mask will cover the entire planet, which means that every person will get access to high-speed Internet at a speed of up to 1 Gbit / s, including the one who lives in the countryside or in a corner very far from \. Since the satellites will transmit the signal immediately to the terminals in the homes of consumers, the system will need to create a minimum of infrastructure. The public has not yet announced any details about the development of the project, but the project’s ambitiousness is not in doubt. At the same time, Airbus and Boeing are planning to launch their satellites into low Earth orbit in the coming years. We are talking about 670 and 3000 devices, respectively. Given the fact that, according to 2016, the planet’s needs are served by 1,459 satellites, we can safely talk about a new era in the development of the Internet. On the other hand, fears are already being expressed about the future congestion of near-Earth space, which can provoke dangerous situations for both people on Earth and operating satellites working on the planet. Indeed, at the moment, humanity still knows how to effectively get rid of garbage that is already flying around our \Also, the prices for the equipment needed to access the new high-speed network, and the service itself for users are approximately unknown., Ars Technica
