New companions are a flat design to effectively position them inside the head fairing of the rocket.

The company SpaceX Elon musk, launched the Falcon 9 rocket with 60 first communications satellites system, Starlink.

It has been broadcast on the YouTube channel SpaceX.

The launch kicked off on may 24 at 05:30 Moscow time from the spaceport at Cape Canaveral. Originally start was planned for 17 may, but was twice postponed because of bad weather.

Starlink is a global system of satellite Internet, which will cover the signal almost the entire surface of the Earth. It is expected that in the coming years the company will expand the orbital group Starlink to almost 12 thousands of satellites in low earth orbit that will provide high-speed Internet access around the world. In the future SpaceX plans to launch into space 11 943 satellite.

“They will maintain contact with the terminals on the Ground using phased antenna arrays, and together they will exchange data via laser link (the first satellites will not support laser communications). The orbital group will be divided into three parts according to altitude orbits. 7 518 satellites are in circular orbits with altitude of 340 kilometers. 1 584 satellite will be placed in a circular orbit with altitude of 550 kilometers. In addition, at an altitude of 1,150 kilometers, will be 2 841 satellite”, — stated in the message.

The first 60 satellites will operate at an altitude of 550 kilometers, the rocket will lead them to a height of 440 kilometers, and to their target orbits, they will get using their own engines, Hall effect, operating on krypton. SpaceX notes that the engine, the satellites will not only get to their orbits, but also to automatically adjust the orbit to prevent collision with space debris.
