For those interested: This is supposedly one of the best write-ups on Starlink to date. It's long, but thorough and blew my mind how detailed it was. If SpaceX can get it to work, the way we connect will truly have changed.

Intro:

Quote:
Starlink, SpaceX’s plan to serve internet via tens of thousands of satellites, is a staple in the space press, with articles appearing every week on the latest developments. The broad schema is clear and, thanks to filings with the FCC, a sufficiently well motivated individual (such as your humble servant) can deduce a great deal of detail. Despite this, there is still an unusually high degree of confusion around this new technology, even among expert commentators. It is not uncommon to read articles comparing Starlink to OneWeb and Kuiper (among others), as though they were all equal competitors. It is not uncommon to read of well-meaning concerns regarding space junk, space law, regulation, and harm to astronomy. It is my hope that by the end of this rather lengthy post, the reader will be both better informed and more excited by Starlink.

I don't know about you guys, but this is an exciting time for our country again and for space travel. I can't wait for next Wednesday!

Here are some photos of them getting the rockets and Dragon ready:

"Don't lose the dreams inside your head
They'll only be there til you're dead
Dream

Lying on the roof counting
The stars that fill the sky I wonder if
Someone in the heavens looking back down on meóI'll never know
So much space to believe....."
