Here’s what we know about the “Starlink Group 5-5” mission:
The Falcon 9 flight is a flight for space-based Internet communications systems.
A set of satellites for the Starlink megaconstellation – SpaceX’s project for a space-based Internet communications system.
The Falcon 9 starts its mission in the low earth orbit. This is located at an altitude of 200 to 2,000 kilometers. LEO rides are the lowest energy and easiest to get to. Spacecraft need about 100 minutes to orbit the earth and can move at about 7 km/s. The radio contact to a ground station is a maximum of 15 minutes per round trip. Low Earth orbit is primarily used for manned spaceflight, but also for spy satellites, astronomical satellites, as well as Earth exploration and weather satellites, amateur radio satellites, global communications systems, and research and technology testing satellites.
