Episode 96 – SpaceX, Microsoft, and Our Channel

Topic 1: SpaceX Takes Off!

SpaceX launched sixty more satellites last week – with ONE rocket. They now have more than 1,000 satellites deployed. Their target is a total of 1,440. These will be dedicated to Internet-beaming.

Last year, SpaceX launched 26 rockets successfully. This year, the goal is 40. Most of those rockets have landed successfully on their floating platforms in the ocean.
