SpaceX successfully launched as many as 60 satellites for its highly anticipated Starlink program from Cape Canaveral on the late night of Monday. The private space agency also launched a spacecraft with a dark coating for addressing the scientists’ concern over astronomical observation. Previously, scientists and researchers claimed that the firm’s highly reflective satellites are becoming a cause of concern while observing the night sky. 

Starlink Project in Details

Starlink is one of the biggest projects from SpaceX. It aimed to provide satellite-based internet services across the world at a reasonable price. The company is going to launch as many as 42,000 commercial satellites in the next few years. The number is massive and it gives you a perspective. Currently, there are only 1500 to 2000 active satellites on the earth’s orbit. On the other side, researchers and scientists fear the increasing space junk, owing to the launch of satellites in such magnitude.

Recent Launch 

The recent launch of 60 satellites is historical for the SpaceX, as it emerged as the biggest private player in the commercial satellite count. Previously, a firm called Planet, which operates nano-satellites for imaging the earth had the hight count of satellites by a private entity. The company plans to start its services by the end of this year in a limited area. 

Recently, a lady from Australia asked Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, to provide internet services in her region, as her area was going to face the internet blackout, owing to the bushfire. While replaying to the lady, Elon Tweeted that the Starlink is not ready for the commercial uses yet. 

The year 2020 is going to be the busiest for SpaceX, as the company is planning to conduct 35 to 38 launches. Among the 35 to 38 launches, most of them belong to the Starlink project.
