    You may notice a strange edit at the 14:18 ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giQ8xEWjnBs&t=14m18s) mark. That's because I had to remove a tiny section of video as a result of FC Barcelona claiming all the monetisation on this video, and I was forced to remove a tiny clip of Messi scoring his first goal.

    I hate it how already the night sky is poluted with satellite flashes.

  • Gooner 72 ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8Kyy9cI6S4spT0r7-nL0HQ) says:

    Yet another great video mate, you've explained this system perfectly so we can all understand it. Brilliant job!!!!

    Thrilled with getting between 180 and 230 mbs in my first week with Starlink ….compared to 11 mbs with bell

  • MrVipitis ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCL2tx0Ke5PvhafL_hU32VUg) says:

    Couldn't you out a minor constellation on the pacific with a few solar synchronous or quasi zenith satellites?

  • RsN92 ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfM-OcWjvwLwjyS9eueLqlA) says:

    All of this so that you can watch your cat videos anywhere in the world

  • LionheartedDan ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNzfj87Uc6_rjfP0cV7Mhhg) says:

    Let’s think like a businessman for a moment. Elon needs a lot of $ to fund SpaceX. I can’t help but wonder what video and still cameras they are fitting in these satellites for VIP customers like NSA. I mean, 60,000 low orbit spies – each like an SR71 only live data feed. Add to that data mining of the internet feeds; wow what a trove! I’ll bet that Starlink is well funded…

  • Stadtpark90 ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl0kbcPd0b4y0IlVRz7IlQw) says:

    so it’s marketed for everyone, but the guys using it are stockbrokers siphoning even more money from the average Joe.
    Let me guess: another customer will be the US Departement of Defense?

    Makes me think of Howard Hughes and the Glomar Explorer: supposedly deep sea exploration by a philanthropic entrepreneur investing into the future of humanity, while it really was a CIA operation to steal a sunken soviet SSBN.

  • Faustin ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvmiU1L05ZBhN4fbW9_pbDg) says:

    Two things excites me about Starlink:
    1st, it'll be cool to see schools in rural areas in Africa get usable and affordable internet. Previous initiatives to get digital technologies to these schools such as the "one laptop per child" project in rwanda failed because of prohibitive costs of internet.
    2nd, censorship will be much discouraged and citizens of countries led by dictator regimes will finally be able to easily access information and express themselves freely.

    Why SpaceX is Making Starlink ? To fuck astrophotographers and astronomers

  • Doug Hoch ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNYtk-BLofRFj3vMF5G_nWA) says:

    The human race is being manipulated for funding money. This money is going to SpaceX. That are building dinosaur spaceships wasting trillions of dollars in research ripping off the human race for pure garbage that will not work in the universe or even go to other dimensions. The human race has become so ignorant it will believe anything that is new but they will not believe the truth with in front of them stop investing money into this garbage to explore space when you don't even know the tunnels of the planet Earth and what lays below your feet wake up humans eliminated for your demise in your stupidity has brought you to death.

  • i thought space x would provide free internet to the world…. money talks $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Also great for lowering your super yacht internet bill.

  • rdius ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQd5ts3XaTt4jmFHFXlnagA) says:

    But wouldn't this be an interference for other rocket launches? Since these move around and there are 12,000 of them, it will pretty much sct as a cage. Maybe I'm dumb amd nkt thinking about something else.

    This technology is going to be a valuable tool for the Antichrist when he implements and issues the Mark of the Beast (666) technology.

  • Ben Price ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC07NzmgzFZ0CJpNfP2NCjXQ) says:

    Broadband internet access for remote African villages? Hurrah! As long as they can pay $100 US per month subscription fee. This is also going to get banned in most third world countries so their telecom mafias don't lose out.

    this is the only project i don't like from Elon musk, the only major problem it has is space junk and it itself a huge problem for space exploration and for other satellites too

  • Jason LIm ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxuaipfVxF3812Td76W9iuA) says:

    I hope this new internet link will stop Governments from shutting down internet, like what's happening in Myanmar right now.

  • Peter Walker ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAPqI8LZXobEE3RCF7kJz2w) says:

    Do we need it or is it just adding to the space junk that is already building up in orbit

  • popop noobmaster69 ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuq6Cq174PCHL_E-CbVGwQg) says:

    Because can't i use it

    This is all ground based technology and space x is a fraud.

    Star link becomes self aware and starts attacking earth in the very near future

  • DRENS2131 ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2QV8fLn8vgLFE2RFHuoJZQ) says:

    So we know how to put satellites up but what about removing the old ones?

  • Slawh Dawg ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUoX7BZXoEBDYWosUyW29mA) says:

    They’re making starlink so everyone one earth can use Bitcoin.

  • Imagine that if aliens who can fly around planets at the speed of light and they live like slaves? Most human on earth live in dictatorship countries and have low quality of life and they are using space tech just for communication. That tells u there is something wrong with our society.

    Starlink was flying high may 23 2021 .4.30am UK time .hadent a clue what it was a bit scary till I googled it crazy sight

  • Kevin Bihari ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC61Sevs3wRb2MMa4GJuJVUA) says:

    Let's be honest. They chose krypton because it sounds cooler

  • Inactive ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDbQSoKifN8AeVwetz3bZTQ) says:

    It's quite sad, to be honest with you, Like is this the future? Looking up into the night sky and seeing these little white specs just fly past? Like I mean it's cool that people can access the internet from wherever they are. But I'm from New Zealand we don't really need these satellites flying around us 24/7 I mean it's good for people who live in rural areas but think. Is this really going to help me? Am I just going to waste my money on this? I'm not trying to put Starlink down I think it's a great project to start off with… But I feel like it is not needed.

    0:45 ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giQ8xEWjnBs&t=0m45s) as I heard they planned to launch 40,000 satellites.

  • liteand fluffy ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoinDz3mehgKRwo9BOHxVaA) says:

    Hello NWO, i see you stole the "Flatpack" Starlink satellite design from me also¡! Still waiting for the compensation. You do know it's gone up to $333.3Billion AUD group payment + $66.6Million AUD individual payment for each country that stole directly/indirectly¿? … …… ……… 369

  • Kartvya Sheth ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfA_xq1AE3ToVBfLLxsog_w) says:

    If there are so many satellites around the earth ,how will we launch rockets for mars . Isn't it just cagging us on earth.

    Elon: fuck

  • Green Hat ^(https://theviraltime.com/goto/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcvk3GUelvoxlN8kaINUGFw) says:

    Vastly more funding than NASA lul

  • other competitors would also follow, so instead of 6k satellites I guess there would be 60k , I wonder if this will affect the earth enviromnet ??? and which is why Elon have plan B – Mars 😅
