Last week, SpaceX sent the Falcon 9 rocket with 60 satellites in space. The Dutch astronomer Marco Lagrange managed to record the satellites as orbiting the Earth, one day after the rocket sent satellites into orbit on Earth.
Elon Musk has confirmed that all 60 satellites are online and are fully operational and that the launch mission has gone smoothly. If his superfast internet project proves successful, SpaceX could beat competitors like Amazon and OneWeb, who are also trying to establish their own Internet configuration.
In the next few years, SpaceX plans to launch thousands of satellites. Thus cheap internet would be available in most of the world's population, where it is still unavailable. The whole project costs $ 10 billion.

London, May 20, 2019 (MIA) - Pedophiles increasingly use social networks, especially Instagram to lure children, according to a study by the Association for the Protection of Children against Violence.
Police in England and Wales reported 1,944 incidents involving sexual connotation involving children.
For that type of communication with children, Instagram was mostly used - 32 percent (1,317 cases), Facebook (23 percent) and Snapchat (14 percent).
Facebook and Instagram have fiercely fought against this. In April two years ago, it was decided to punish that kind of communication.
Five years after the decision was made, five thousand such violations were recorded, but in the Association they say that the figure does not reflect the true state of affairs.
A police report said seven out of ten victims were girls aged 12 to 15 years. Every fifth girl is under the age of 11, and the youngest victim was only five years old.
Peter Vanles, director of the Association, says social networks do not respect the rules.
-The data show that children cannot be safe on social networks. We must not wait for the next tragedy to happen. Companies must respond, he says.
The National Anti-Crime Agency says that the platforms used by children and young people must have mechanisms that prevent such behavior on the Internet.
"Children and young people should be alerted when these situations are in question," they stress.
In the deepest point of the Indian Ocean live fish from the Liparidae family are now seen for the first time.
British experts descended to a depth of about 7.1 meters in the Indian Ocean and saw rare creatures left without words. During the eight-hour mission, photographs of creatures that are presumed to be new and so far unseen have been made.
As a leading expert on marine ecology at the University of Newcastle, Dr. Alan Jamison needed two and a half hours to reach the bottom of the ocean in one of the world's most isolated points 100 nautical miles off the island of Bali. The expedition was led by the American Viktor Veskovo, and they traveled to the bottom in a submarine for two and passed more than 7,192 meters.
"We do not often see something so unusual that leaves us without words," said Jamison for Mirror.
For the first time, human beings have seen fish from the Liparodae family. Unfortunately, during the expedition, samples of artificial fibers and plastics were found, which means that human-induced pollution has reached the most isolated points on our planet.
NASA reported that the Hubble telescope made a spectacular spiral galaxy photography NGC 2903, part of the constellation Leo, 30 million light-years away from Earth.
About 75 percent of the galaxies in space are spiral. Milky Way has been reclassified into a spiral galaxy with a central part and spiral star-filled stars, as well as cosmic dust and gases.
The focus of NASA is currently focused on black holes, and spiral galaxies contain black holes that are once near the center. Hubble's research on spiral galaxies aims to uncover the connection between black holes and local galaxies.
Preparations for a huge asteroid called "The God of Chaos" have already begun, and according to NASA's calculations, it should pass near the Earth in ten years from now.
On April 13, 2029, people in the sky will be able to spot a small dot light passing over them, which will become brighter and faster with each passing moment. She will travel so fast that she will spend the entire length of the moon in just one minute and be bright as the stars in the sky.
It is an asteroid whose official name is Apophis, after the Egyptian god of chaos. The asteroid has a width of 340 meters and is one of the largest that ever passed near the Earth. NASA has already begun preparing for its arrival, which will be harmless as Apophis will pass to 30,000 kilometers from Earth.
The Apophis will pass far enough from Earth to cause damage to our planet, and close enough for NASA scientists to extract data from it. So far, NASA had a chance to observe smaller asteroids from a closer distance but never before had a larger asteroid been detected at this distance.
"The advent of Apophis in 2029 will be an incredible opportunity for science. We will observe the asteroid with optical telescopes and radars. Through the radars, we will be able to clearly see the surface of the asteroid, "said Marina Brozovic, a radar explorer and scientist at NASA.
The asteroid will be visible to the naked eye of the night sky above the Southern Hemisphere, passing through the east to the west coast of Australia. Then, Apophis will travel along the Earth, through the Indian Ocean to the United States. It will most likely come closer to Earth when it flies over the Atlantic Ocean, which will fly in just one hour.
