SpaceX Starlink

Following the SpaceX launch and deployment of Starlink test satellites on Thursday night, a new Starlink Website has just gone live.

It includes a clearer depiction of just what these Internet satellites look like -- there are renders of the different features, and (just above the render slideshow) a solar panel deployment video.

https://www.starlink.com/

Who would have thought that a satellite could be that flat? One might even say it was designed to be made into a paper model (subtle hint)

Techcrunch has an interesting analysis of the satellite's features.

Cheers!

Marco Langbroek in the Netherlands recorded video of the 60 Starlink satellites as they pass overhead in orbit -- this is quite interesting to see! He also has updated videos in his Vimeo account.

Someone in those Vimeo comments notes this address, which has a tracking map and preliminary orbital elements -- so you may see these satellites also.

Read an article on the launch and was wondering when some of the space designers would jump on doing one.
