Elon Musk's Latest Space Fantasy
Friends, I've written before about the American-Canadian-South African tech titan Elon Musk. He has some great ideas, and he has some not-so-great ideas. This article is about his "Starlink" project, which aims to provide global satellite-based broadband internet access. Sounds nifty, right? Perhaps not so nifty when you consider the technical challenges and expense -- and, I don't know about you, but I already have good internet access. A few thousand more satellites floating in space won't change that.
