Thousands of satellites are being launched with SpaceX rockets, delivering coverage to most of the world.

The founder and billionaire Elon Musk is known for his large, ambitious projects. Most now know about his solid SpaceX room program, which has already shot up and landed, a number of rockets and landing modules.

Musk looks at the moon and Mars among other things in their plans, and much is at stake. Especially also because he is not alone in his dream of a future for people in space. But in the meantime, he also has another great plan that utilizes SpaceX's ability to shoot satellites.

Internet for everyone - from the room
The Starlink project will consist of a large number of satellites, which in turn will supply internet services to large parts of the world. The company of Musk was scheduled to launch 60 Starlink satellites from Cape Canaveral in Florida this week but had to postpone the launch due to strong winds.

Each satellite weighs nearly 230 kilos, which is the heaviest weight a SpaceX rocket will have lifted so far. To be able to reach their goals of fixed internet coverage to most of the world with Starlink, Musk will have to shoot up another 12 such rockets.

Much to clave, and more about the leg
But Starlink and SpaceX, on the other hand, are not alone in the race for internet services from the room. Other big companies like LeoSat Enterprises, Telesat, and OneWeb are in full swing with their own satellite programs to compete with each other.

Elon Musk calls his Starlink project "one of the most challenging projects I've done, from an engineering standpoint". The company will begin to contract agreements with customers during 2020, and expects to have 2000 new satellites launched each year in the future.
