SpaceX has launched another 60 Starlink satellites.  The plan is to provide worldwide satellite broadband access.  Apparently, you can already sign up to beta test the service.  It is reportedly pretty good.   In a rare miss, the booster failed to land on the recovery ship.  That booster had already flown 6 previous times.  Amazing.

  1. 1. I am more amazed that they can recover any of the boosters at all than that they fail occasionally.
    2. If Starlink can provide worldwide internet access, uncensored, to anyone who wants it it will end the CCP.

  2. They’ll have to smuggle in the equipment to receive it.
