Space X launches 60 satellites to jump start its global internet scheme

The SpaceX company has begun the roll-out of its orbiting broadband system. The Starlink satellites are set to launch aboard a Falcon 9 rocket on 23 May from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The goal of the constellation is to provide a global broadband internet network. Musk's firm aims eventually to loft nearly 12,000 spacecraft for its Starlink network. 6 more rocket flights are needed before minor broadband coverage is achieved.
