Elon Musk is one step closer to bringing his SpaceX vision to Australia.
SPACEX IN AUSTRALIA
So far, Musk’s bold plan to send hundreds of ‘satellites into space’ — SpaceX Starlink — to deliver internet connections has been approved by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).
This was earlier in the year, during the bushfire ‘crisis’.
ACMA stated that SpaceX’s “inclusion in the determination does not confer a right on that entity to obtain a license, rather it is a prerequisite before a space apparatus license can be issued”.
Last that was heard, SpaceX must gain final regulatory approval by obtaining a spectrum license that will allow the Starlink satellites to communicate to ground stations that are based in Australia.
Now, there are rumblings that indicate the company is making a move.
Rumours are swirling after registered Australian company TIBRO AUSTRALIA PTY LTD changed its name to STARLINK AUSTRALIA PTY LTD.
Reddit user, Softwareaur, discovered the change and shared it to reddit, saying the SpaceX subsidiary just came out of “stealth mode”. Another user cleverly pointed out the TIBRO is ORBIT backwards.
TOTT News can also confirm that this company has applied for the spectrum licenses still needed to ensure that Starlink does not interfere with existing Australian communications services.
So far, this includes at least four Australian regions – Broken Hill, Boorowa, Wagin and Pimba:
It is predicted the organisation will quickly develop further in Australia from here.
Starlink’s Australian approval is just one of many countries that SpaceX will have to go through in order to create a fully-operational internet infrastructure that can be utilised by people worldwide.
“Starlink is targeting service in the northern US and Canada in 2020, rapidly expanding to near global coverage of the populated world by 2021.”
Quietly creeping, SpaceX is a dark horse that will transform existing capabilities.
Competing against both 5G and the NBN here in Australia.
WHAT IS STARLINK?
SpaceX was one of three companies, along with Canadian company Kepler Communications and the US Swarm Technologies, to be approved to kickstart the process “to eventually obtain space apparatus licences to operate in Australia”.
SpaceX has said Starlink, a network of thousands of satellites, will become “the world’s most advanced broadband internet system”.
“Starlink will provide fast, reliable internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable,” the company’s website read.
Starlink will use a constellation of between 4,400 and 40,000 internet-emitting satellites that will create affordable and reliable connections for people across the world.
Some existing satellites already orbit near Australia:
Under Starlink’s plan, the hundreds of satellites wouldn’t need to be geostationary, because there are so many of them that one will be in orbit near you.
Contrary to belief, they won’t be in space. The satellites will instead be in low-Earth orbit (an Earth centred orbit less than 2000 kilometres off the ground).
The Starlink satellites, will travel between 337 kilometres and 1142 kilometres from the ground, making them able to communicate much faster than other satellites much further away.
The world’s first international internet grid. Interconnected and advanced.
Musk’s SpaceX company is also working on ‘space tourism’ and a variety of other projects, however, many suspicions remain about the safety of the project and its true intentions.
Is this really about internet? Or will this sophisticated network merge with Musk’s AI projects?
Many suspect this is a plot to bring a transhumanist vision to life completely.
MUSK: A FOUR HORSEMEN
Artificial intelligence, data learning, robots, you name it. Elon Musk has been discussing these concepts for years and is already testing in preparation for chip implant rollouts.
He recently unveiled a pig called Gertrude with a coin-sized computer chip in her brain to demonstrate the prototype for a working brain-to-machine interface.
As a result, the brain activity of these ‘enhanced pigs’ could be transmitted wirelessly to a nearby computer, allowing onlookers at the event to watch neurons fire in live time.
The news comes a little over a month after Musk announced his latest start-up, Neuralink, was in the process of developing a brain-computer interface that allegedly has a ‘life-changing’ range of benefits – including the ability to stream music straight into your brain.
Both Musk and Facebook are at the head of the pack in terms of research projects.
SpaceX wants to take the possibilities of internet connectivity to greater heights.
Could this be linked together? Could the grid being constructed by Musk really be the controlling mechanisms that will drive AI and related systems?
This system could indeed be the power behind the incoming posthuman world.
Only time will tell. Keep an eye out, folks.
