Thursday’s dispatch is set to be the second Starlink ride share, this time with two Earth-watching microsatellites for Dark Sky, an organization that gives high-def satellite symbolism.
This will be the third Starlink dispatch in June alone, bringing the size of the developing heavenly body to almost 600 satellites and closer to the edge of 800 flying switches that Musk has said would take into consideration some restricted broadband help to start.
