Starlink Mission

  • Published: 24 May 2019
  • SpaceX is targeting Thursday, May 23 for the launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. SpaceX’s Starlink is a next-generation satellite network capable of connecting the globe, especially reaching those who are not yet connected, with reliable and affordable broadband internet services.

    The launch window opens at 10:30 p.m. EDT on May 23, or 2:30 UTC on May 24, and closes at 12:00 a.m. on May 24, or 4:00 UTC. A backup launch window opens on Friday, May 24 at 10:30 p.m. EDT, or 2:30 UTC on May 25, and closes at 12:00 a.m. on May 25, or 4:00 UTC. Falcon 9’s first stage for this mission previously supported the Telstar 18 VANTAGE mission in September 2018 and the Iridium-8 mission in January 2019. Following stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. Approximately one hour and two minutes after liftoff, the Starlink satellites will begin deployment at an altitude of 440km. They will then use onboard propulsion to reach an operational altitude of 550km.

              The low orbit (550 km) will create enough high atmospheric drag to automatically deorbit them in 1-5 years if the ion thrust fails. Space is not a complete vacuum especially so close to earth. Says so at 8:12

                          While it's seems like a vast leap for mankind , have you considered the impact this has on Astroimaging and observation from the ground. Long exposures already capture many trailing satellites and planes, now we have another 7000 up there to ruin images. Being Science company not sure how SpaceX ignores this? we have already surrounded the earth with so much man man debris now we are adding more. Should we perhaps not focus on new communication technology that does not really on EM ?? We are moving from Binary to Quantum computing but in comms we are still stuck on early 20th century discoveries.

I have dreamed of such a reality since I first read SciFi as a child. The fundamental changes to humanity by this affordable space program are possibly limitless and perhaps just in time. If we didn't take these steps now, they may not have been taken. I've read about the hurdles you've all had to leap. Heroes of our time. --
