Internet Satellites – level 2

24-02-2020 15:00

On Monday, the company SpaceX used a rocket to send 60 satellites into orbit. The company´s rockets landed on a drone ship; however, the last rocket missed the drone ship, and it fell into the Atlantic.

It is the company´s fourth mission this year, and there are about 300 satellites in orbit. SpaceX plans to send thousands of more satellites into orbit. The plan is to make a system of satellites that will move around the Earth and offer fast internet for all of the world.

The company said that the northern US and Canada could use internet from these satellites this year.

Difficult words: satellite (a thing that travels around a planet or a sun), orbit (the way of an object around a planet or a sun), drone ship (a place in the sea where rockets land).
