SpaceX launches new round of Starlink satellites

Elon Musk's company sent another sixty Starlink satellites, hoping to build out its plan for an internet service that reaches across the globe.

Olivia Chan reports.

SpaceX took another step toward its worldwide Internet system on Monday (6 January 2020).

One of its Falcon-9 rockets launched from Florida's Cape Canaberal hauling sixty of the company's 'Starlink' satellites.

This is the third batch of satellies that Elon Musk's private rocket company has fired into space.

Eventually SpaceX wants to put 12,000 up in low-Earth orbit.

The latest batch will join more than a hundred already in space.

The hope is this constellation will be able to beam high-speed internet almost anywhere in the world.

If all goes to plan, customers in United States and Canada will be able to access Starlink as early as this year.

Starlink is worth the effort for Musk, helping to pave the way for his larger goals of space exploration.

He's said the project is pivotal to help bring in cash for projects like commercial space travel and eventually colonizing Mars.

However, SpaceX isn't the only one trying to install an orbital network.

Among them, Airbus partner OneWeb is probably Starlink's biggest competitor.

It launched its own satellites early last year.

Detailed Designs Show Mars Cities To House One Million Humans

These detailed designs show Mars cities to house one million humans with inhabiitants living on the side of cliffs. The design inlcudes 5 cities with each city accommodating between 200,000 & 250,000 people. The project, called NÜWA, is part of an exhaustive scientific work for a competition organised by the Mars Society. Abiboo Studio led the architectural design. It's founder, ALFREDO MUÑOZ, says "if we were to construct the buildings as on earth, the buildings would tend to explode from the pressure, the solar and gamma radiation on Mars forced us to build spaces that are not directly exposed to the sky." The project has been fully developed by the Sonet Network, an international team of scientists & academics, headed by astrophysicists Guillem Anglada, who led discovery of exoplanet Proxima-B.

Simulation shows how Moon might have formed 4.5 billion years ago

Astronomers say they are one step closer to understanding how the moon mighthave formed out of a giant collision between the early Earth and anothermassive object 4.5 billion years ago. The moon is thought to have formed in acollision between the early Earth and a huge object, known by scientists asTheia. Scientists at the University of Durham ran supercomputer simulations tosend a Mars-sized object crashing into the early Earth. These simulationsproduced an orbiting body that could potentially evolve into a moon-likeobject. While the researchers are careful to say this is not definitive proofof the moon’s origin, they add that it could be a promising stage inunderstanding how the celestial body formed.
