Ready to Roll: SpaceX’s Starlink Project set for its maiden voyage to Space

When SpaceX unveiled its ambitious plan to create a platform that will disrupt the status quo in the world of Internet and Technology, many critiques called their bluff.

Fast forward till today, the company is exceeding many expectations by leaps and bounds. Its Space program is making waves and, recently, the firm is in the news for its Starlink space project.

From every indication, it certainly looks like all is ready for the proposed launching of SpaceX’s Internet Satellites this week.

SpaceX’s CEO, Elon Musk, teases his teeming Twitter followers with an image that gives us a sneak peek at the first set of the company’s space-bound satellites.

When you take a closer look at the image, it is evident that the company is leaving no stone unturned in its preparations.

Production Design Satellites to deliver top-seed Internet

We could confirm that at least sixty satellites have been carefully packed together in preparation for a successful launch. The Twitter image further shows this pack of Internet-beaming satellites in the nosecone of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.

Back in 2018, SpaceX’s used the same rosecone that helped to successfully launch a Tesla Roadster artificial satellite into Space. However, the satellites seem to be well-arranged, unlike the Roadster that only managed to occupy the base of the nosecone.

The arrangement is a big step forward in the company’s quest to launch a constellation of spacecraft that will deliver top speed Internet from Space. In a thread of tweets, Musk confirmed that the satellites are the pioneer operational units under the firm’s Starlink vision.

Mega-Satellite Constellation for top-speed Internet

SpaceX’s Starlink program entails a proposition to launch about 12000 low-orbit interconnected satellites that will provide high-capacity Internet transmission.

After getting the nod from the Federal Communications Commission, SpaceX plans to launch the constellations twice. The first constellation will include 4,409 spacecraft while the second constellation, with a slightly lower altitude, will include 7,518 satellite.
