SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, who is working to build a massive Starlink Satellite constellation just tweeted his first tweet using the same satellites.
Elon Musk's Starlink Satellite project aims to provide seamless high-speed internet to users across the globe. This will also bring internet access to even the areas that have no access to the Internet so far. Starlink Satellite constellation is reported to be working to provide a very low-cost, internet through its space-based internet communication.

While Space X currently has around 62 satellites in the orbit that were launched in May this year, it plans to add hundreds of more satellites by the end of this year as part of the project. Starlink initially planned to build a constellation of 12000 satellites in LEO but the project was expanded to 42000 satellites. Elon Musk recently filed a request with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) via the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide spectrum for 30000 satellites in addition to the already requested 12000 satellites. Even the aimed project comes true satellites in Starlink will be five times more than the total number of satellites that have been sent to space by humans. Space X estimated the cost of this project to be around $10 Billion initially but it is surely expected to go up as the number of satellites in the project.
