Update: The launch of SpaceX just happened. Below you can watch the current live broadcast, followed by videos of the actual cancellation.
The new SpaceX-launched live broadcast (built-in below) is happening right now, and this time the mission is to deliver not astronauts, but satellites for something you can currently buy: space high-speed internet.
The launch of the SpaceX Starlink into orbit will place 60 satellites (there are already 1,000 floating ones there). Consumer payload will be ejected into the night sky from Cape Canaveral Space Station in Florida.
SpaceX live streaming is now happening. Launch time is correct on Monday, at 22:59 EST / 19:59 PST in the US, or Tuesday at 3:59 am GMT / 14:59 AEST. As with any SpaceX launch, you’ll want to turn it on a few minutes before that Falcon 9 rocket fires, so plan to watch it before the time announces. Here’s SpaceX’s launched live video stream:
What is SpaceX Starlink all about?
A private space company founded by Elon Musk is determined to bring the Internet to the world by placing satellites in space and transmitting high-speed Internet speeds with little delay to satellites.
This is a major advantage for rural communities where high-speed Internet is not available and does not exist. A string of long optical cables has prompted cable companies trying to serve several rural residents located outside of dense cities and suburbs.
SpaceX says it wants to change that. Starlink speeds are expected to vary between 50Mb / s to 150Mb / s, according to the official SpaceX Starlink login page, and latency should drop between 20ms and 40ms in most locations.
SpaceX is currently in beta and is limited to certain geographic areas. You must enter your address to see if it has been introduced in your part of the world. We are available from mid to late 2021, but we can already put $ 99 into service.
The SpaceX Starlink Internet service will cost $ 99 per month, which is equal to or slightly more than the Internet packages in the US. We pay about $ 75 a month.
It has been determined that you will have to pay for hardware and delivery: a one-time fee of $ 50 for shipping and handling and $ 499 for a Starlink antenna, Wi-Fi router, power supply, cables, and installation tripod. There is a tax, at least in the US.
If Starlink is fast enough, it can act as a competitor to fiber optic cable suppliers, which are often monopolies or oligopolies in many parts of the world. Today’s launch of SpaceX is a sequel to the beta version of Starlink which is 300 miles in the sky.
