In the past few years, SpaceX has applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for the launch of up to 12,000 low-orbit satellites to build the space Internet, which are called Starlink. Now, SpaceX announces that it will launch the first Starlink satellites in May and will continue to launch in the next five years. This represents the project.From the development stage to the product stage。
The first Starlink satellites will only use Ku-band broadcasting signals. SpaceX plans to launch once a month and 2,200 satellites in the next five years, with an average of 44 satellites each time. These satellites will need to be replaced after several years of operation, which means that maintaining a constellation of thousands of satellites, SpaceX, will require a lot of launches.
