Space technology seems to skyrocket, and major revolutions are about to be experienced in the way we communicate, travel and beyond. New players are coming to the field and so is the funding for research which continues to bear fruits.

A recent development like the ones which tried to explain the reason for frequent Fast Radio Bursts nowadays is now happening due to the availability of top-notch technology. And scientists are not resting either, there has been yet another milestone which is intended to change the way we access the internet.

This is after the launch of SpaceX Prototype Internet which we look into more detail here below.


The Events Of February 22, 2018

SpaceX is one of the companies that designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft.

They have tried to bring several developments to space science which includes the manufacture of modern rockets like Falcon 9 with reusable components and therefore cutting cost and making space exploration more affordable.

But their latest move on February this year is what has now caused tongues to wag as very soon we could start browsing using high-speed internet straight from spacecraft.

Elon Musk, the CEO, and founder of SpaceX.

Tintin A And Tintin B

What happened on that fateful day is that the company managed to launch two prototype internet satellites.  If everything goes according to plan the two satellites will be used to host Starlink which is a network consisting thousands of Spacecrafts which will provide broadband internet the world over.

Tintin A and Tintin B as the two satellites are being referred are already able to communicate to the stations on the Earth as it was communicated by Elon Musk, the CEO, and founder of SpaceX. This is good news to the world as such development would take the way we surf to the next level and which could result in faster reliability broadband.

On this day, SpaceX also used Falcon 9 to deliver to orbit another satellite known as Paz Earth which is a Spanish military earth observation satellite, and which will be operated by the Spanish company Hisdesat.

This is right, the series that so many waited for so long! The curiosity about SpaceX can be compared to the curiosity of… women orgasms. In the case of Girl Cum you will become a witness of truly spectacular things happening. Imagine your favorite actress from the porn industry cumming multiple times in one session. Sounds impossible or unreal? Not this time as you are going to experience all of this in 4K quality videos.

There are great plans to continue recycling parts of Falcon 9 with an aim to keep costs of space exploration even more affordable. Like during this historic launch, there was an attempt to capture the falling nose of Falcon 9 using a speedy net-equipped boat popularly referred to as Mr. Stephen. Though it never succeeded, the boat missed its target by a few meters.

Though Tintin A and B were launched, a lot remains to be done to have Starlink work effectively. There’s a lot of technical work that is expected to go in place especially in designing and deploying a low-Earth Satellite constellation. This was said by Mr. Tom Praderio who is SpaceX firmware engineer.

It is expected that Starlink should be operating by 2020 at least in a limited capacity. First will be gathering data by Tintin A and B which will be useful in compiling the necessary information ahead of Starlink official launch.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC)


Apart from technical work, other hurdles involve obtaining the required certification which includes a full certification by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

But things seem to move in the right direction as sometimes during the month of February Ajit Pai Chairman of the FCC endorsed Starlink though official approval is yet to be received.

SpaceX is not the only company with ambitions for satellite-internet constellations, other players include OneWeb, Telesat and Space Norway and which have their missions approved by FCC.

The happening at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on February 22, 2018, marks another major milestone.

Countless Benefits

Provision of satellite internet seems to be a step in the right direction. The technology would help low-income groups from around the world some who have never accessed the internet to access affordable high-speed internet.

To achieve low costs for internet provision, using reusable modern technology for satellite launch like SpaceX’s Falcon 9 is imminent and a very welcome move. We are now optimistic that what started in 2015 when SpaceX CEO revealed the broad outlines for Starlink is finally going to be realized.

The happening at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on February 22, 2018, marks another major milestone in a century that is moved by technology with the internet being a major facet of life. We can’t, therefore, wait to start surfing using broadband coming straight from the cosmos.

Keep the good work SpaceX!

From Isaac Newton to Nicolas Copernicus to Galileo, I have tried to feed my love for the skies by reading the life stories of this great men and women. But the more I opened pages the more I found I wanted to know more – and more I read, libraries I visited, journals, the internet and wherever until I came to the end of the road.
