Keep an eye on the sky for another SpaceX launch

SpaceX also launched 10 communications satellites from the Vandenberg Air Force Base last December.

Another delay means the Falcon 9 rocket and it cargo won't blast off before Wednesday at Vandenberg Air Force Base, officials announced Saturday.

On Feb. 6, the company launched the world's most powerful rocket, SpaceX's Falcon Heavy, from Florida. The Post states that it can cost hundreds of dollars per day for first responders in an area hit by a natural disaster to access a mere 5Mbps of satellite internet in areas where infrastructure is too damaged to use. "The low-orbit position could deliver broadband speeds equal to current speeds from traditional Net providers", says SpaceX. The launch had been rescheduled for Saturday morning, then pushed back to Sunday. The rocket was launched on February 6 from Florida, carrying a Tesla Roadster and a mannequin nicknamed "Starman". "I have asked my colleagues to join me in supporting this application and moving to unleash the power of satellite constellations to provide high-speed Internet to rural Americans", Pai said.

FILE PHOTO: Ajit Pai, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, testifies before a U.S. Senate Appropriations Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, U.S. on June 20, 2017. According to Pai, it is the first approval given to an American-based company to provide broadband services using a new generation of low-Earth orbit satellite technologies.

The said giant network, composed of almost 12,000 satellites, will beam internet connectivity to antenna receivers on the ground from low-Earth orbit. As many as 60 million urban Americans, and 16 million rural Americans, still aren't connected to the Internet, according to the research firm IHS Markit. It said it is also processing similar requests.

SpaceX plans to begin the launching of operational internet satellites as early as 2019 and additional satellites will be launched in phases. Telesat received approval for 117 satellites already authorized by Canada. In October, a pair of USA senators sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission asking the agency to coordinate with other federal agencies on space junk in light of the plans by SpaceX and others to add thousands of new satellites to Earth's orbit.
