The FCC has approved the deployment of a 4,425 satellite constellation for SpaceX. The satellites will be in support of the Starlink internet service that Elon Musk envisions will provide affordable internet services to remote areas that are currently underserved. However, there is one caveat, half of the satellites have to be deployed within the next 6 years and all of them within 9 years or a new approval must be applied for. I don't know about you guys, but I think that's a lot of stuff going into orbit in a short period of time and I believe SpaceX is going to be hard-pressed to meet the deadlines required by the FCC. Good luck Mr. Musk. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) also said SpaceX’s approval is conditioned on an updated de-orbit plan, since the sheer number of satellites envisioned by SpaceX’s “Starlink” constellation goes far beyond what current guidelines consider manageable.
