Elon Musk’s company SpaceX is all set to launch its new rocket in the space which has almost 60 satellites which are being called am internet evolution. The rocket is going to launch on Wednesday the May 15 between 10 p.m. and 12 a.m. The rocket will leave the earth from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The rocket has a total of 60 satellites through will a test will be conducted for the floating internet backbone which will also be called Starlink. By the year 2027, SpaceX will have more than 1200 satellite in the space which will provide the affordable and the best internet service of all time.

According to Gwynne Shotwell, who is the president and chief operating officer of SpaceX, the Starlink project may cost more than $30 billion a year. Musk tweeted on Saturday, “Much will likely go wrong on the 1st mission.” FCC which is Federal Communications Commissions has a lot of details on the project as some of them were also conveyed by Musk and Shotwell.

Mark Handley, a computer networking researcher at University College London said, “This is the most exciting new network we’ve seen in a long time, the project could impact the lives of ‘potentially everybody’.” Starlink comes with the mission to solve some of the rising problems and earn a lot of money of it as it includes, Lack of pervasive and affordable connections and the significant lag between distant locations which we all experience once in a while on an online call.

The data is transferred through optic wires today but later the data will be easily transferable through electrical signals. Indeed, even in one nation, accomplishing a direct wired way from ones. One of the advantages is that the data would transfer 47% faster than fiber-optic glass wires.

Information transmitted over current satellites is one of the laggiest. That’s a result of almost the majority of that rocket circle Earth from around 22,236 miles (35,786 kilometers) high, where they can “glide” over one area on Earth. In any case, that is sufficiently far to cause a greater part second of slack.
