The first step in the Starlink project, where SpaceX would equip thousands of satellites around the world, was successfully launched.
The mini satellites sent for testing were placed in the desired trajectory. Elon Musk informed his followers about the latest status of his satellites on Twitter. One of the projects that SpaceX has been working on for many years, Starlink is made up of 4425 satellites that will surround our planet. Satellites that will coordinate each other through a laser will make it possible to establish a much faster internet connection than they are in close proximity. At the same time, these satellites, which are more profitable in terms of cost, will bring internet to the land that still does not meet with the internet.
Starting with explanations made by Elon Musk about the Starlink satellites in recent years, we know that SpaceX will use the revenue from this to fund his Mars journeys. For this reason, we realize more clearly how important the satellites are, which are thrown away at 17.17pm on Thursday, February 22nd.
After the launch, Elon Musk informed his followers:
“The first two demonstrations, the Starlink satellites Tintin and B, settled in orbit and began to communicate with stations on Earth”
The launch yesterday actually carried the Spanish-style PAZ as the primary cargo. When two Starlink satellites fit into the empty space of the load-carrying capacity of the powerful Falcon 9 rockets, the mission is not just material income in terms of SpaceX. There are many tests that Tintin and Tintin B satellites need to pass to prove their global broadband internet service.

If the world’s first constellation satellite system, which is planned to be actively alive in many regions until 2020, is successful, today’s Internet standards will be buried.
SpaceX uses its rockets as recyclable to reduce the cost of space travel. Even the protective layer of Starlink satellites launched yesterday was tried to be caught by a ship in the Pacific Ocean to be reused. The value of these covers is $ 6 million.
