Starlink project nowtime received permission from the US Communications Commission (FCC). The Office has put forward the condition that half of the planned satellites should be in orbit over the next 6 years. Currently, only 2 test satellites TinTin A and TinTin are in orbit, to which on May 15 the 60 objects shown by Mask should join. The company’s founder did not disclose the safe separation of Falcon 9 from all Internet satellites tightly loaded under the head fairing, as billionaire Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon and aerospace company Blue Origin, is breathing with a similar global satellite Internet deployment plan.

Starlink project will provide access to the Internet.any inhabitant of the Earth anywhere in the world. The small size of the satellites ensures their safe operation, in the event of an accident, they simply burn when entering the dense atmosphere.
