Space X Launch Deploys “Starlink” Satellites

Jasmine Clark, The entire purpose for the recent SpaceX launches is to expand and connect a satellite based internet system for rural areas with little coverage. The system is built by sending “starlink” satellites through rocket launches often more than 50 satellites on one rocket. Once in space or about 550 kilometers, the part of the rocket containing the starlink satellites separates. Then the satellites use what SpaceX calls “space lasers” to travel 100s of megahertz of data per second. Although the internet system is only available for beta-testing right now, SpaceX hopes to open it to the public soon.
