SpaceX sends up 60 mini-satellites with plans for thousands more – Japan Today
The private SpaceX company on Monday launched a second set of mini-satellites as it builds a huge constellation of the small orbiting devices aimed at greatly expanding internet access around the globe.
A Falcon-9 rocket launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, placed 60 mini-satellites in orbit, joining 60 others launched in May.
The American company’s Starlink network could one day total 42,000 satellites — resulting in far more crowded skies and raising concerns among some scientists.
Multiple companies are sending up 5G satellites, which then beam 5G microwave radiation back to earth. What could go WRONG?
