How much will SpaceX Starlink cost?
Starlink is expected to cost at least $10 billion to develop. The company says it’s currently on strong financial footing. But SpaceX is privately held, so there isn’t a lot of information out there about how money moves through the company.
How does Starlink work SpaceX?
The company built the satellites at a new facility in Redmond, Washington. SpaceX says the Starlink satellites are the first to use krypton-fueled ion thrusters. The propulsion system ionizes the krypton gas and uses electricity to accelerate the atoms out the back of the engine to produce a low level of trust.
What will Starlink do?
Starlink could bring cheap, fast internet to remote areas, airplanes, ships, and cars, plus make international teleconferencing and online gaming nearly lag-free.
How many satellites will be in Starlink?
Currently, there are 2,000 operational satellites in orbit around Earth, according to the latest figures from the European Space Agency, and the completed Starlink constellation will drastically add to that number.
