Starlink is a satellite constellation currently being constructed by SpaceX to provide fast internet access worldwide.

History

The first concept of Starlink was first announced in January 2015[1] by Elon Musk. The project was kept closely under wraps for the next four years until scheduling the launch of the first batch of experimental Starlink satellites in May 2019.[2] These sixty satellites launched aboard a Falcon 9 on 24 May 2019 from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
