What is Starlink?
The dream of access to the internet, to everyone no matter where you are in the World is “STARLINK“.
The goal of Starlink is to create a network that will help provide internet services to those who are not yet connected and to provide reliable and affordable internet all across the globe. In simple words, the Internet for all.
How does Starlink works?
Starlink will soon start offering internet access virtually to anyone from anywhere on the entire globe. The goal of Billionaire Elon musk is to launch thousands of small satellite’s in lower earth orbit. Then Starlink will be able to transmit fast internet signals directly down to Earth, To literally any part of the globe.
The satellites are very flat and then when 60 of them are placed inside one of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rockets. Then they are put in lower earth orbit, a single large solar array comes out to power the satellite. The main portion includes four powerful antennas for internet transmissions.
This allows them to stay in orbit longer.
It finally blasted off at 5:46 a.m. PT (8:46 a.m. ET) from Launch Complex 39-A at the Kennedy Space Center, sending 60 more Starlink broadband satellites to space.

“With these space lasers, the Starlink satellites were able to transfer hundreds of gigabytes of data,” Starlink COO said. “Once these space lasers are fully deployed, Starlink will be one of the fastest options available to transfer data around the world.”
The great news is :- SpaceX has completed 16 launches in 2020, all using our favorite Falcon 9 rockets.
Looks like the day of internet connectivity wherever we go is not far away, with the help of Starlink many remote areas will get access to the internet where fiber-optic failed to reach.
I guess you are also excited to use the internet which is coming from space, hope you liked this article helpful. write down your views on Starlink.
Does the goal off the internet for all is possible with Starlink? write down in the comment section.
