Satellite Wars: Battle for Earth online for vsehna

In the implementation of the program of public satellite Internet Elon Musk and Greg Wyler there have been some success and unexpected changes. In the autumn of last year, “Computerra” already wrote about the origin of this initiative. Then she was still together, and the mask and Wyler were to be cofounders. Over the past three months, developers have specified a number of technical details, enlisted the support of large companies and received the first investment. However, due to a disagreement two variants of one project is now developing and OneWeb SpaceX independently.

As before, the small satellites will be located at an altitude of 1200 - 1210 km. This is much closer to the earth’s surface than most currently used telecommunication satellites. On the one hand, the height does not require frequent lifting of the orbit due to deceleration in the thermosphere (satellites are well above it). On the other - the distance to the ground stations and the required power transmitters are an order of magnitude smaller than traditional values.
