Connecting 4 Billion People … Half the Worlds Population Shortly – SpaceX’s Starlink

So there was a time when manufacturers laughed and Elon Musk and said no way would he ever get an electric car off the assembly line, much less in our garages….

Neat posts from the past on his Tesla journey, here, here and here … and did you notice he had a successful launch over the weekend?

Starlink by SpaceX

With a goal of launching twenty thousand, yes THOUSAND low level satellites this year for connectivity of cell service, likely is not a good bet against him…

Here is a picture of a 60 satellite launch…

You may say, so what?

His goal is to bring the other half of the world on line via high speed 5G cell at the latest 2025 … and it looks like he may complete it much earlier…

 

Global Connections in years

Sure, there will be some “bad” guys i.e. hackers that come on line…. but think of the brilliant brain power and future consumer that also come on line.

Anyone with a bit of salt in their hair recalls the dial up connection that likely was their first experience with the internet… not these folks, they will come up at 4G and most likely 5G as their first connection… thousands of times faster than our first connection… maybe even 100’s faster than what we have now…

Pretty positive stuff!

Have a Great “4 billion soon” Day!
