SpaceX will launch a batch of Starlink satellites for their high-speed, gaming speed, low Earth orbit (LEO) internet constellation.

Starlink is a satellite internet constellation being constructed by SpaceX providing satellite Internet access. The constellation will consist of thousands of mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO), working in combination with ground transceivers. SpaceX also plans to sell some of the satellites for military, scientific, or exploratory purposes. The SpaceX satellite development facility in Redmond, Washington houses the Starlink research, development, manufacturing, and on-orbit control operations. The total cost of the decade-long project to design, build, and deploy the constellation was estimated by SpaceX in May 2018 to be about US $10 billion.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX will launch Starlink V1 L12 Thursday September 18, 2020 @ 2:17PM EST or 18:17 UTC.
