the company of Elon MuskSpaceX, has carried out a new satellite launch starlink second generation. On this occasion, 21 satellites have been launched into space. This launch has been made from Cape Canaveral in Florida, United States and a reusable SpaceX rocket has been used.
The model of the rocket is the Falcon 9, which has the peculiarity that it can return to Earth intact after its launch. In fact, it is already on Earth after having carried out this task. Starlink’s 21 satellites will add to the company’s nearly 4,000 satellites already in space.
The new fleet of satellites starlink The second generation aims to expand and improve the company’s service, allowing the Internet to be brought to areas that are difficult to access for conventional companies. Elon Musk seems to have everything very well tied up and, by using his own rockets for this task, he manages to save costs.
Leaving aside the launch and all that it means, Elon Musk has shared a video in which you can see the deployment of the 21 new Starlink satellites. Despite the fact that the video is completely spectacular in general terms, the most interesting and visual aspect is how the Earth is seen from space.
The video of the new Starlink satellites being put into space is spectacular
The Starlink satellites are 550 kilometers from Earth, which, according to Elon Musk, makes the Internet connection much more viable and functional for those people who decide to bet on this satellite connection system. Leaving this aside, now it’s time to talk about the video posted by Elon Musk on Twitter.
The first thing to note is that this is an extremely short video, lasting only 14 seconds. But these 14 seconds amass almost 23 million views. What can be seen is basically the deployment of the 21 satellites of the rocket and, at the same time, the rotation of this rocket with the Earth in the background.
The show is incredible. In addition, the quality makes it even more surprising to be able to see the curvature of the Earth, clouds in detail and the ocean with its characteristic blue color. Without a doubt, this video has completely eclipsed the launch of these 21 Starlink satellites that Elon Musk has put into space.
