SpaceX's Starlink might soon bring you in-flight Wi-Fi

SpaceX is working on making its satellite internet network Starlink a provider of that fast in-flight internet connectivity you so desire. 

While speaking at a panel at the Connected Aviation Intelligence Summit on Wednesday, SpaceX's VP of Starlink and commercial Sales Jonathan Hofeller said the company is already in talks with "several" airlines, The Verge reported

“We have our own aviation product in development…we’ve already done some demonstrations to date, and looking to get that product finalized to be put on aircraft in the very near future," he said. 

Starlink is currently offered as a beta service in select areas (mostly in the U.S. and Canada) for $99 per month (after a one-time $499 equipment fee). The company currently has about 1,800 satellites in orbit, and is steadily launching new batches, with the goal of reaching "near global coverage" in 2021.  Read more...

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
