Two of the world’s richest men are in dispute. We are talking about Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. Both want to launch a large number of satellites. With the help of these satellites, they will supply internet on the earth. In such a situation, there has been a war on space on social media between the two.
Musk criticized Amazon via SpaceX on social media. He accused Bezos’ company of making false claims about Starlink’s strategy. Starlink is a satellite internet constellation (planetarium). It is operated by SpaceX.
What is the dispute?
SpaceX director David Goldman last week sought permission from the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to operate StarLink satellite space in lower orbit. Amazon’s space company BlueOcean plans to set up its satellites at an altitude of 590 km, while Musk’s SpaceX has been allowed to install satellites from 540 to 570 km altitude. Amazon alleges that at this height, SpaceX’s satellites will damage it and other Kuiper projects and satellite signals. But SpaceX does not believe this. Amazon’s satellites are also designed to provide internet service from space.
According to the Bloomberg report, this dispute has now come to the world. Both businessmen want to fulfill their dream of space. On January 26, Amazon said on social media that it was a proposed change of spacex that was killing the competition between satellite systems. Responding to Amazon, Musk said on social media that it is not in the public’s interest to disable Starlink satellite for the Amazon satellite system running several years back.
SpaceX has 1000 Saillight
Amazon has received permission from the Communication Commission to launch 3,236 satellites. Whereas, Elon Musk’s spacex company has launched 1000 satellites so far. All these are for his Starlink Internet system. They are serving the users of US, Canada and UK.
Musk is the world’s richest person
Among the world’s richest human beings, Elon Musk is at number one with a net worth of $ 206 billion (about Rs 15 lakh crore) and Jeff Bezos with $ 189 billion (about Rs 13 lakh crore).
