Sixty of the internet-beaming satellites launched atop used Falcon 9 booster on Monday, January 6.
Unsurprisingly, the crowded skies have raised concerns among astronomers.
To put that into context, there are now around 2,100 active satellites orbiting our planet, according to the Satellite Industry Association.
SpaceX is not the only company to offer Internet access from space.
SpaceX has permission from regulators to launch up to twelve thousand platforms, it has however has talked of an eventual forty thousand reckoning on how the project develops.
SpaceX's boss also entertains a long-time dream of colonizing Mars. In the past years, it was very hectic to use satellites, but with the progress and advances in the technology, it is easy as ABC for one to have the capability of using satellites for internet connection.
SpaceX can enter service later this year in the northern United States and Canada and expand after 24 launches to the most populated areas in the world.
Astronomers say the proliferation of the bright metallic satellites could seriously degrade the night view, interfering with both optical and radio astronomy.
The 60 Starlink satellites, created to provide cheap and efficient internet service to people across the world, adds to the 2000 satellites orbiting round the earth. In response, SpaceX came with a darkening treatment to reduce reflectivity.
Be that as it may, a space analyst, Laura Forczyk, points out that the effectiveness of the new technique is still in doubt. "Astronomers and stargazers will be able to compare the brightness of this current batch of smallsats compared to previous versions".
SpaceX says it has a plan for that, too: its Starlink satellites deploy at an altitude of 290 kilometres (180 miles) and then engage their ion thrusters to reach an orbit of 550 kilometres (340 miles).
Any satellites that fail the checks will be left in the lower orbit, where the faint traces of the Earth's atmosphere will eventually cause them to re-enter and burn up, thus reducing space debris.
