SpaceX’s First Batch Of Starlink Satellites Ready To Test

According to a report by Digital Trends, SpaceX's ambitious project to create a global satellite broadband internet network continues as the first batch of satellites have now entered orbit and are ready to start testing.

SpaceX announced that 57 of the 60 satellites in the first batch launched into space last month are now working as intended.

Digital Trends reports that the other three satellites lost communication during the launch and have not been heard from since, and will orbit the planet for a while before falling back to Earth and burning up in the atmosphere.
