It has been launched since musk announced Starlink, the space Internet project775Satellite. This huge project has been attracting much attention and controversy since it was launched, but recently, it has finally seen the test effect!

According to the first aboriginal tribes in North America who received Starlink services,The program is being publicly tested in North America, and tribal users have just tweeted thanks.


Then Musk returned,

The tribe, the Hoh tribe, is located on the edge of Washington state, about three to four hours west of Seattle. Previously, because of the distance from the central area, residents in the area usually only used the Internet at a slow speed of 0.3 to 0.7 Mbps.


After understanding the problem by the State Department of Commerce, the Starlink team was contacted, hoping to solve it through Starlink. After that, SpaceX gave the tribe early access to the Starlink satellite network.

Commenting on the increase in speed, the Ashue Vice-Chairman of the tribe said:

starlink satellite networks are now able to provide 100 Mbps of download speed with a delay of less than 30 milliseconds, which is similar to the speed of the terrestrial base station Internet, SpaceX said.

But there's no need to worry about Starlink. Starchain plans to provide high-speed, low-latency satellite Internet services around the world from mid-2021.

Musk signed a contract with the Pentagon to build a rocket that could be launched quickly around the world

In addition to the good news from Starlink, SpaceX has another big event today. According to vice, the Pentagon announced the partnership with musk at a virtual conference on October 7 to develop aA rocket that can deliver packages anywhere on earth in an hour.

The U.S. Transportation Command (ustranscom) is the backbone of the U.S. military. One of the factors that make the U.S. military the dominant global combat force is its ability to move troops, weapons, and supplies quickly to where they are needed. C-17 transport planes fly over the globe, transporting troops and weapons to where they are needed. However, the U.S. no longer produces C-17, so as military logistics demand rises, the supply of vehicles used to transport supplies declines.

To fill the logistics gap, ustranscom wants SpaceX to build rockets that can be launched quickly around the world.

USTRANSCOM deputy commander, deputy admiral Dee Mewbourne, said in announcing the plan:

Cooperation will take the form of a cooperative R & D agreement (CRADA), a special contract between the government and a private company. Unlike traditional military contracts,

The project is still in its infancy, and it is unclear when or if SpaceX will be able to transport mraps, artillery and MRes from Fort Bragg to Djibouti within 45 minutes.
