SpaceX is set to launch a new batch of Starlink satellites into space tonight, February 27th. The new satellites, dubbed “V2 mini”, will join the existing Starlink network, which is currently in its beta testing phase.
The new satellites are smaller than the existing Starlink satellites and are designed to be more efficient and cost-effective. SpaceX has also made modifications to the satellites to reduce their reflectivity, which will help reduce their visibility from Earth.
SpaceX has already tested the new satellites and has shown off their capabilities in a video posted to its website. The company has also announced that the launch of the new satellites has been pushed back to Monday, March 1st, from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
The new Starlink satellites are expected to provide faster and more reliable internet connections to users across the globe. The launch of the new satellites will mark a major milestone in SpaceX’s efforts to bring high-speed internet access to remote and underserved areas.
