CRTC approves SpaceX's BITS licence application for Starlink

CRTC approves SpaceX's BITS licence application for Starlink”

"As our Starlink network is still in its early stages, the Starlink team continues to test the system, collecting latency data and performing speed tests of the service", the company said in a statement.

This is another impressive show of SpaceX's ability to maintain a very fast and frequent pace of launches, which has this year focused mostly on delivering its own Starlink satellites to orbit.

SpaceX is preparing for their fifteenth Starlink launch, from SLC-40, on Wednesday, October 21st 12:36 p.m. EDT. The big ship, Of Course I Still Love You, is known as one of the firm's two vehicles to catch landing rockets and return them to land. Following the abort, SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk announced that there had been an "unexpected pressure rise in the turbomachinery gas generator" in at least one of the nine Merlin rocket engines that power the Falcon 9′ first stage.

Washington, Oct 19 (IANS) Elon Musk-run SpaceX has launched 60 more Starlink satellites aboard Falcon 9 rocket to be deployed in low-Earth orbit, bringing the constellation to 788 as the company gears up for a public beta of the affordable satellite broadband service. This was the sixth space trip since the launch of the Crew Dragon spacecraft in March 2019 in an unmanned test flight - this special booster - designated B1051.

However, there were some hiccups with the retrieval of the fairing halves, as one of these halves broke through the capture nets on the recovery ship.

After the previous Starlink launch October 6, SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the launch would soon allow it to "roll out a fairly wide public" test in the northern United States and "hopefully" in southern Canada.

Emergency responders in the state of Washington set up a free WiFi hotspot for residents of Malton using the Starling network, which was largely destroyed by wildfires in September.

Musk tweeted earlier this month that Starlink would be "revolutionary" for remote regions and in emergency services situations where landlines are damaged.

"We have a long way to go", said Melvin John Ashu, vice chairman of Howe Tribe. "Our young people can educate themselves on the line, participating in the video". Thus, the company's orbit satellite network has expanded a little more.

The 13th Starlink launch was completed on Sunday from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Nonetheless, a SpaceX Falcon 9 first stage made a pinpoint landing on a Company's drone ship for six voyages into space and back after helping launch another batch of Starlink Internet satellites. There are also 3 new Falcon 9 rockets that have never been launched for upcoming missions.
