Software Checks Lead To Delay In Starlink Launch―Report

According to sources, initial batch of internet satellites launch could be delayed by a week or so. On May 16, 2019, Space X had announced that it won’t be launching their internet satellites on pre-scheduled timing as the company needs to do a lot of software up-gradation.

Through his Twitter account, one of the representatives of SpaceX wrote that the company has undertaken current endeavor to make sure that everything goes smoothly. The representative also wrote that the company is performing intense cross-checking of its satellite so that it can provide effective service to its customers in a short time span.

Starlink, which is designed by SpaceX will reportedly provide efficient internet connectivity to people on a global level. During a press interview, Elon Musk said that the company will need near about 400 satellites for minimal coverage. SpaceX needs to launch near about 800 satellites if it wants to cover a moderate area.

One of the spokespersons of SpaceX told the media that Megaconstellation will play a major role during the Mars colonization project. During an interview, the CEO of SpaceX said that the revenue which the company will generate due to the present endeavor will boost them to manufacture super-heavy rockets.

Apart from SpaceX, Amazon and One Web are also planning to send internet satellites in the outer space so that they can provide better connectivity to their customers on the planet earth. Back in February 2018, SpaceX had launched its two prototypes and both of them had done well during the test mission.

During a press conference, Elon Musk had said that the service of internet satellite will start somewhere in the year 2020. To challenge the dream of SpaceX, Amazon is planning to launch 3,236 satellites in the outer space so that it can provide personal internet connectivity to its users.
