Starlink launch on 16th May 2019
Being the heaviest SpaceX mission, Starlink had been cross-checked for more than thrice a week, and finally, it took its grand launch in the night of Thursday 16th May. Previously various new launches were also made successfully to generate power to the earth, but Starlink has been designed with special features which have recorded to be the highest power-generating SpaceX mission till now with 1 terabit energy.
It has been reported that the first decided day of launch was 15th May, but there was a massive barrier on behalf of the weather. Finally, 16th May night the situations got cleared, and Starlink went on its launch.
SpaceX Starlink with special features
What’s so special in this new Space mission? On the query, Musk replied that Starlink had been built with such technological features where it can use thousands of satellite’s network at a time and that also in a low orbit of the Earth. As a result, the users will get broadband services with high bandwidth and low latency. The networking and connectivity will also remain under a continuous speed.
Starlink: One of the most ambitious projects said Elon Musk
Starlink mission will be heaviest @SpaceX payload ever at 18.5 tons. If all goes well, each launch of 60 satellites will generate more power than Space Station & deliver 1 terabit of bandwidth to Earth.
