take-off and landing from manual To push the capsule which has freed all of the satellites has been a spacex Falcon 9 rocket used which, as explained by SpaceX has already flown two other times. The first to send to the Iss as a test, the capsule Crew Dragon, destined in the next few months to bring back astronauts from u.s. soil to the space after the retirement of the space Shuttle. And the second in June of last year, for the launch of the constellation Radarsat.

The mega-constellation The number of satellites that will, in the plans of Elon Musk, the network around the world, even in the poorest and most remote, to 240, 180 of those are operational, since the first 60 were the first “outlet” in the test phase. The first constellation should get to count in the next few years, 12,000 in all. Many of them have been approved by the Itu (International telecommunication union), the international body for the allocation of radio frequencies for telecommunications and the Federal communications commission statuniense. But SpaceX has made application for the approval of 30,000 other satellites. The reason for this is the duration (a few years) of each satellite in orbit, and a replacement is necessary and continuous.

A high number (42.000 satellites, more than eight times the number of objects currently in orbit, if you exclude the debris) continues to generate concern within the scientific community and not only. Their passage may in fact disturb the observations of the sky. But the traffic is so intense and will require new solutions in order to avoid possible collisions in orbit, and to remove the satellites no longer operational, moving them or causing them to precipitate and burn in the atmosphere.
