    Why not use Saser technology? Through the use of cones and vibrations channeled through a crystal sound waves can be propelled faster than light they also don't create nearly as much heat!( Virtually none!)

    uh-huh - starlink has immediate military application both for covert and persistent spy capability but as massive transmission redundancy in case an enemy shoots down a satellite. Financial markets being second and 3rd world access to our capitalism. Musk can have all the great ideas he wants as long as the stock goes up.

    So while showing this video to my father he noticed the the satellites dont pass the north pole. Hes partly a flat earther (which explains why out of the entire video that is the one thing that made him question something). Im not a flat earther myself so i had assumed there was a good reason for it (like not allowed to enter the airspace or something) but i wanted to look it up because im not the best at explaining things without sounding stupid. Unfortunately i was unable to find any information but im still curious as to why the satellites are set up to orbit like that instead of around the entire globe now. If anyone has an answer could you provide me some form of information please?

    @Matthew Hall My exact thoughts. I had said that but he brought up the info about how there ARE researchers there which was hard to counter on the spot because im not the best thinking up quick counters. Thanks for the help my dude

    It’s simple no one lives that far up in the northern hemisphere. You might get the occasional group of researchers or the sight of a submarine breaking through the ice

    cool, but a major waste of money imo. I love Elon Musk, i really do. but wtf. how much??? all told???? why not invest in de-salination (sp?) plants or something cooler and more useful?? pretty sure more safe water for all is better then internet to a large portion of the world. certainly in the short and mid term.

    This is already experiencing problems with cyber rape this guy has taken part in over neural nets and I'm actually pressing charges against you against Elon Musk over grand larceny, attempted murder, stalking, harassment w/ a penalty of perjury for trying to ruin my reputation w/ the affluent/1% while I endured torture that he contributed to. He withheld information form federal agents as I was connected to him in links with other people that are part of a transhumanist society trying to get to Mars and he has tried to steal the mathematics to an experimental technology for the Starship he is attempted to build. Don't negatively assess what I am saying immediately and act dismissively, I underwent the harm and his name was brought up over and over again because he was taunting with his friends thinking I know nothing about physics. The problem being, it isn't a contention over physics even though this is him trying to steal a mathematical set over quantum mechanics law for a future tech regarding something called a "tractor beam"... The actually issue is a social one at it includes statutory rape against the actress Daisy Isobel Jazz Ridley(Rey, Star Wars) and across a multitude of famous women that he took part with, that again is includes the misuse of a prototype futurist idea which is called a "sex casino" which you can link into people nerve to nerve, end-user to end-user in order to copulate with them across a cyber network. Look that's evidence. pin.it/smslrd7laz6gse
