    Good morning fellow Canucks!

    Lovely weather we are having. I better go and buy some snow tires. I have been procrastinating on that.

    Have a great day folks.

    SpaceX Just Launched 60 Starlink Satellites
    (And Nailed a Milestone Rocket Landing)


    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX's plans to bring global internet coverage to the world just took another leap forward as its 9th Falcon 9 rocket flight of the year launched 60 new Starlink internet satellites into orbit Monday (Nov. 11).
    The satellites rode into space atop a veteran Falcon 9 first stage, ending a nearly three-month launch hiatus for the company. The last time a SpaceX Falcon 9 took to the skies, was on Aug. 6, when the company’s flagship rocket carried the Israeli AMOS-17 communications satellite into space.
    The sooty Falcon roared to life at 9:56 a.m. EST (1456 GMT), lifting off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station here in Florida, marking the fourth flight for this particular booster, and the first time a Falcon 9 has flown more than three times.
    "The Falcon has landed for the fourth time," SpaceX Starlink engineer Lauren Lyons, said during launch commentary. "These boosters are designed to be used 10 times. Let's turn it around for a fifth, guys."


    The launch occurred on Veterans Day, a U.S. holiday commemorating military veterans, and SpaceX dedicated the flight to service members. "Liftoff! With gratitude to our veterans today and always," a SpaceX commentator said. "Go, U.S.A.!"
    Following the successful launch, the rocket's first stage gently touched down on a SpaceX's drone ship landing platform "Of Course I Still Love You" in the Atlantic Ocean, marking the company's 45th booster recovery.
    Tucked inside the rocket's nose cone were 60 Starlink satellites — the second batch (and first operational set) of SpaceXs broadband internet megaconstellation, which the company hopes will help provide affordable internet coverage to the world.



    Increased Connectivity

    Currently, internet users rely on wireless cell towers or cables routed into our homes and offices to access the internet. This means that many rural, remote areas around the world are often left without access as the satellites providing coverage are too far away. Many other options for satellite-based internet exist, but can be very expensive and offer slow connecting rates. SpaceX wants to change that.
    "This will not only provide internet access to areas that don't have it, but provide competitive access to areas that already have connectivity,” company CEO, Elon Musk said in a media teleconference prior to the first Starlink launch in May.
    Traditional satellite internet providers beam internet coverage down from a high orbital perch, with their satellites stationed in what’s known as geostationary orbit (which is typically 22,000 miles above the Earth). Because the signal has to travel such a long distance, the time it takes to send and receive data is substantially longer and more akin to the days of dial-up.
    By operating at a lower altitude — approximately 217 miles (350 km) above the Earth — SpaceX hopes to cut down on this issue and provide reliable coverage at an affordable price.

    Good morning fellow Canucks!

    First snow fall, first shoveling the driveway. I'm out of shape... actually, I am pear shaped...

    Anyhow, I'm glad it is sunny out so that the sun can melt it so I can come home to a dry driveway.

    Have a terrific Tuesday folks.

    I were chillin' in the sunshine , thank-you very much.



    Now internet girls want to video date me.
    Somehow I think that is a VERY VERY bad idea.
    Jessika has that look in her eyes.
    I know that look, she wants her back rubbed......maybe.
