    Got to get that Starlink space debris into orbit. I tested cable WiFI at my sisters house. Too fast. Now I got to clean my front room to install. They sent me a promo in Spanish(I am not) for $37.50. Maybe they will let a English speaker get the same deal. They sent me a gov. $14.95 deal pre approved for people getting SS extra over 65. I never signed up for that. I will have to check. I am thinking with HD cable speed, just stream everything and dump TV.
    Project Kuiper is a new initiative to launch a constellation of low earth orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world,” Amazon said in response to an AFP inquiry.

    “This is a long-term project that envisions serving tens of millions of people who lack basic access to broadband internet.”

    The filings described a plan to put 3,236 satellites in low orbit at altitudes ranging from 367 miles (590 kilometers) to 391 mile (630-kilometer), according to GeekWire.
    Doug might have put this up and I forgot. More space debris.

    So what’s changed from the fairings can’t get wet such that they tried two net designs, to we can just haul them out of the drink and use them? Assuming it’s easy make a fairing shell water proof, it sounds like maybe Space X has developed a new acoustic absorber pad that can take water or is easy to clean.

    They got that dialed in.
