    What will StarLink look like on your device? Looks like one listing per overhead satellite; if one gets blocked it switches to the next in line.

    SpaceX is adding shifts to their antenna production facilities.

    StarLink phased array antenna, which tracks the overhead satellites without moving. It selects a primary and a spare. If the primary's signal degrades it switches to the spare and selects a new backup.

    StarLink v1.0 Launch 11 (12 with v0.9 test birds, which are being deorbited)

    Funky music.

    This will be the 2nd launch this week, and both without a static fire.

    The launch host reported they already have StarLink satellites up with laser inter-satellite links, and have transferred "hundreds of gigabytes" o_0
