SpaceX Plans Massive, Satellite Internet Constellation
Hawthorne-based SpaceX, the rocket and spaceship development company led by mogul Elon Musk, has added a grand new plan on the company's way to deliver humanity to Mars: to provide Internet access across the globe. SpaceX has apparently filed plans with the FCC to begin testing a project to deploy its own, extensive satellite constellation, which would use 4,000 space satellites to bring Internet connectivity to every spot on earth. SpaceX had not said when it intends to have that constellation deployed.
