#TwoMinutesOfSpace Part 13: New Space - What can mega constellations like Starlink do?

Space Knowledge with OHB-expert Carsten Borowy

Once a month, space pioneer Carsten Borowy presents concentrated space knowledge in "TwoMinutesOfSpace" and explains the big and small wonders of space.

In Episode 13 he talks about a recent trend in space travel that, among other things, gives us strings of glowing dots in the night sky: New Space. In mega-constellations developed by private companies, such as Starlink, the individual satellites are tiny, but together they are intended to close the last gaps in global Internet coverage.
