Keep an eye on the sky for another SpaceX launch

SpaceX told the FCC in a February 1 letter that it plans to launch a pair of experimental satellites on one of its Falcon 9 rockets. In October, a pair of USA senators sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission asking the agency to coordinate with other federal agencies on space junk in light of the plans by SpaceX and others to add thousands of new satellites to Earth's orbit. In a statement, Pai said, "Satellite technology can help reach Americans who live in rural or hard-to-serve places where fiber optic cables and cell towers do not reach". "And it can offer more competition where terrestrial Internet access is already available". Further, the service providers looking to perform a similar feat will have to devise a plan to properly calibrate the device with these satellites via accurate tracking so that the users are online every time to access the internet. Democratic FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel said, "The FCC should move quickly to facilitate these new services while underscoring our commitment to space safety". Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which overlooks all the matter of telecommunication received a letter from senators in the USA about the space debris.

Some critics of satellite broadband have highlighted the risk of creating more debris in space that could prove harmful to other space operations. The company targets a full-capacity network dubbed as "Constellation" by 2024.

Some 4,425 satellites will sit at an estimate of 700 miles up, while another set of 7,518 satellites will orbit 200 miles up.

SpaceX wants to provide broadband services using satellites in the United States and worldwide.

Bennett, who has ambitions to be prime minister, heads the far-right party Jewish Home, which holds eight seats in parliament. He added that the "prime minister never acted in Milchan's benefit on any issue, except for one, that of the visa".

Documents cited in media reports identify the satellites as part of a SpaceX program known as "Starlink", which envisions an array of almost 12,000 satellites circling Earth within about six years, creating a worldwide internet system. SpaceX isn't alone in the wagon since many organizations are using satellite broadband, however, it is not available for the masses for now.
