Starlink satellite constellation expands
Record number of launches in 2022 for internet transmission system
The US aerospace company SpaceX has put into orbit in recent hours another 47 satellites of the Starlink constellation, the global transmission system for Internet service that allows you to connect to the web even in areas not covered by the terrestrial wireless signal.
The launch of the satellites took place, with a method now proven, by the base of Cape Canaveral: a reusable Falcon 9 rocket took into orbit the capsule with the transmission systems and a few minutes later returned to Earth with a vertical landing on the SpaceX ship waiting off the coast of Florida.
This is the sixth Starlink satellite launch since the beginning of 2022. A record for the space company led by entrepreneur Elon Musk, who is offering its internet services to Ukraine at war with Russia.
