Elon Musk has revolutionized the world of technology with not only their fleet of electric cars through Tesla but has now officially taken over the world of internet through Starlink, which is his mega high-speed internet project. Starlink, which started off as a pre-mature take on satellite internet, now provides high-speed internet access to all 7 continents and every place on the globe. So, it’s safe to say that Elon Musk has taken over the world of technology by storm.
The idea of high-speed internet reaching places such as Antarctica seemed like an implausible idea a few years ago. However, as of September 14th, SpaceX officially confirmed that Starlink will be able to provide high-speed internet to remote locations such as Antarctica. This has become possible due to the groundbreaking space laser network laid out by Starlink, which neglects the need for stations on the ground.
The significant benefit of this is to the scientists working in Antarctica. The National Science Foundation praised Elon Musk and Starlink and confirmed that a Starlink terminal had been installed in Antarctica at the McMurdo Station, a US-run research center. The McMurdo station is one of the three Antarctic science facilities run by the United States and, being the largest of the lot, can support up to 1258 scientists. The science and technology going into Starlink is impressive, as it promises to provide high-speed internet even at freezing temperatures all year round.
This news not only shows how Elon Musk is shaping today’s world of technology but also silences everyone who doubted Starlink and its ability to provide internet around the globe.
