    Some information regarding Orbit planes are my speculations, we do not have any details from SpaceX on that yet, but suggestions in the comments are welcomed!

      Why do the rockets have to curve? Why can't they just shoot straight up?

      Also, where did u get ur data about internet connectivity in India?
      You literally used India's map icon to show as an underdeveloped region for internet connectivity while India has one of the cheapest 4G data rates, and easily twice the number of internet users than USA.
      How do u think T-series got to the no. 1 spot in TVclip? 😅

      @Devin B Plan is for 12,000 Satellites That's right TWELVE THOUSAND so basically free for all in space, regulations hahahaha
      AND that's just what SpaceX has planned there's 9 more companies that are going to launch mass satellites too.

    I can't help but to worry that 10'000+ non-geo-stationary satellites in LEO, it'll get very difficult to plan further space launch windows? Not least if you're not SpaceX... Is this a monopoly in the making?

    people they think you are so stupid they are willing to bet you will not question any of this. it is a show to slow down the flat earthers. google flat earth proof. they have removed every single video?!!!!? why out of room, nope you did well and exposed the truth. yeah it is cheaper to put up thousands of million satolights then use the millions of poles that are in place and up and running. end time show before the nukes start flying. the forced mark, obama returns. end time show, thats all and it is darwin level....

    And another empty tube is launched into the darkness so no one can see just how short these flights actually are....and to fool all you gullible idiots out there who think that somehow satellites can magically float at a height that has never been determined or proven with any believable data.....but that doesn't matter to you fools out there....the fact that no one has ever seen any satellites "Up there" is totally un-necessary for are so smart YOU don't need any proof do you......What a Numpty you are....Gullible is your middle name fool....idiot is your credence....lololololololololol....arsetronuts to the moon......but today's prize for "Dope of the Day" goes to A.Quinn....the shill who thinks the satellite train was actually real and orbital mechanics are somehow real....Doh !!!

  • Charles Yeo

    You can't play video games on a network where the network switches from high latency high orbit satellites to low latency low orbit satellites regularly as the low orbit satellites go out of range. It would spike the latency suddenly causing decrease gameplay experience

  • Charles Yeo
    Charles Yeo 4 months ago

    So basically... Until it has many many many lower orbit satellites. The coverage will be spotty and the latency will be high. The promise of low latency will not happen until years later. All I want is 50ms ping to the other side of the world that would enable so many technologies

    12k satellites for 480 million people seems a bit much. Anyone knows if that coverage is good or not?

      @JD Hedrick the x Rays and other radiation that comes from the satellite and the mobile phone disrupt the signal that Animals and birds use to communicate and migrate. If this happens they won't know where to go and they will die. You can actually watch that on you tube or just read about it. There is also an Indian superhero movie on it called robot 2.0 really it to know more. It's really sad to see how they die.

    Good script.very professional sounding par with BBC n CNN top reporters content.
    Well there's a problem here with so many satellites cramming at such close distances will it not affect our telescopic outer space observations.
    It reminds me of Wall E intro scene.

    India is already ahead in terms of total number of internet users.
    There's been a great shift in Indian Telecom & ISP since 2016 after the entry of Reliance Jio
    4G data is relatively cheap and efficient as of now.
    And here we have, this guy literally using “India” map icon to show as an underdeveloped region for internet connectivity?
    Do ur research before claiming such things man.

      @Calisthenics Chicken nope, try to understand that even 1mil of that satellites wouldn't get in the way of rocket. Try do the math and calculate area on which they are orbiting;) Think about airplanes, every minute in air there is 10000 planes, do you constantly see them?
