Elon Musk, Starlink


In a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Tesla CEO Elon Musk dropped hints about introducing Starlink, an innovative satellite internet service, in India. Musk expressed that Starlink could be a game-changer for remote or rural villages with limited or costly internet access.


Unlike traditional satellite internet services, which rely on a single geostationary satellite positioned at approximately 35,786 km from Earth, Starlink utilizes thousands of satellites orbiting much closer, at around 550 km. This proximity significantly reduces latency; the time data travels between the user and the satellite. With Starlink, latency is brought down to approximately 25 milliseconds, starkly contrasting to the over 600 milliseconds experienced with conventional satellite internet services.

Elon Musk hints at bringing Starlink, SpaceX's satellite internet service, to India, providing high-speed and low-latency connectivity to remote villages and underserved areas.

Starlink is pioneering the use of optical space lasers on its satellites, enabling data transmission without relying solely on ground stations. Each Starlink satellite incorporates an advanced phased array and parabolic antennas, increasing data transmission capacity. Propelled by efficient krypton-powered ion thrusters, the satellites can perform orbital adjustments, maneuver in space, and execute controlled deorbiting at the end of their operational life.


The potential entry of Starlink into India holds promise for bridging the digital divide in remote areas and underserved regions, providing affordable, high-speed internet access. Elon Musk's vision of leveraging Starlink to support activities requiring real-time interaction, such as streaming, online gaming, and video calls, could revolutionize connectivity in the country.
