Starlink's constellation continues to grow.
Despite inflation, SpaceX continues to grow and investors believe in its plans. Ilona Maska is now focusing on two main activities. The first is Starlink, whose constellation is designed to deliver high-speed Internet to the most remote regions of the world. SpaceX has already sent over 2,400 satellites to Earth orbit and plans to send thousands more. The company is now capable of producing 45 satellites per week. It also manufactures separate antennas that allow users to connect to satellites.
