    Makes you wonder how all those companies get by at all?

    Do Space X workers get toilet paper at work?

  • SpaceX launches first batch of 60 internet satellites in landmark mission

    [QUOTE][SpaceX just vaulted a rocket full of 60 satellites into the sky, marking a huge leap forward on its mission to put up a megaconstellation that could beam cheap broadband all over the planet.

    This is the first dedicated mission for SpaceX's internet constellation, called Starlink. It kicked off when the company's towering Falcon 9 rocket blazed toward the sky from a launch pad at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 10:30 pm ET.
    Around 11:30 pm ET, the second stage of the rocket deployed what's called a payload stack holding all 60 satellites. It slowly began to drop the individual satellites into orbit.
    Musk said the satellites would fan out in a way that will look like "spreading a deck of cards on a table."He confirmed in a tweet not long after deployment that all 60 satellites were "online," and that the devices would soon spread out their solar arrays, which power the satellites while in orbit./QUOTE]
