Internet Satellites – level 1

24-02-2020 15:00

On Monday, the company SpaceX sends 60 satellites into space. These satellites move around the Earth.

SpaceX has a plan. SpaceX wants to send thousands of satellites into space. The satellites talk with each other. They bring new and faster internet to all people in the world.

SpaceX uses rockets. The rockets take the satellites into space. The rockets land on a drone ship. A drone ship is a place in the sea. There is not a pilot on a drone ship. This week, a rocket falls in the water.

The company thinks that northern US and Canada can start to use the new internet this year.

Difficult words: satellite (a thing that goes around a planet), space (the empty area outside the Earth), rocket (an object that moves very fast, and it travels to space or into the air).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
