Starlink Mission

  • Published: 24 May 2019
  • SpaceX is targeting Thursday, May 23 for the launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. SpaceX’s Starlink is a next-generation satellite network capable of connecting the globe, especially reaching those who are not yet connected, with reliable and affordable broadband internet services.

    The launch window opens at 10:30 p.m. EDT on May 23, or 2:30 UTC on May 24, and closes at 12:00 a.m. on May 24, or 4:00 UTC. A backup launch window opens on Friday, May 24 at 10:30 p.m. EDT, or 2:30 UTC on May 25, and closes at 12:00 a.m. on May 25, or 4:00 UTC. Falcon 9’s first stage for this mission previously supported the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission in September 2018 and the Iridium-8 mission in January 2019. Following stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. Approximately one hour and two minutes after liftoff, the Starlink satellites will begin deployment at an altitude of 440km. They will then use onboard propulsion to reach an operational altitude of 550km.

        For the Mars mission, you could save a lot of weight and space if you send a crew of midgets to Mars to be the first Martian colonizers.

                                                        This guy is spending so much of time and effort just to start a civilization in Mars! Mars is not a place for humans what's the point in living their?? Even if humans start to live their, how would they sustain themselves for the long run! Sustaining human lives in Mars would mean launching hundreds and hundreds of rockets to Mars in periodic intervals for as long as humans are staying their! Won't the pollution from rocket make earth more and more terrible place to live? And won't the continual exploitation of natural resources from earth just to cause a propulsion in space, deplete earth of its precious natural resources! I think the whole idea behind the civilisation of Mars is business! For only rich would go their, leaving all the poor on earth to suffer even more, as the earth itself would be getting poorer and poorer! Hell awaits u all!!! The best way to reach Mars is to have a really good damn dream about u doing doggy style in Mars!

Long exposures already capture many trailing satellites and planes, now we have another 7000 up there to ruin images. Being Science company not sure how SpaceX ignores this? we have already surrounded the earth with so much man man debris now we are adding more. Should we perhaps not focus on new communication technology that does not really on EM ?? We are moving from Binary to Quantum computing but in comms we are still stuck on early 20th century discoveries.
