Musk Says Starlink Now “Active” On All Seven Continents

    Starlink’s global expansion seems to be more extensive than what is depicted on the company’s map. Musk is now claiming that Starlink is now “active” on all seven continents.

    Musk Says Starlink Now Active On All Seven Continents

    Elon Musk stated his satellite-internet system Starlink is “active” on all continents. The Starlink website’s availability map, however, indicates otherwise.

    “Starlink is now active on all continents, including Antarctica,” Musk tweeted.

    However, the availability map of the low-latency, high-speed satellite internet service only seems “available” in the Americas, Europe, and Australia; Russia, China, and Iran appear to be blocked, with no service in the near future. And not even a trace of development in Africa (despite Musk’s birthplace of South Africa).

    Despite the fact that Ukraine is on the “waitlist” with service not yet officially accessible, there have been numerous reports in Western media about how Musk’s space satellites transformed the ground fight against Russia. Perhaps there is more to it than catches the eye, as coverage appears to be more widespread than indicated on the map.

    Upwards of 2,300 Starlink satellites are in orbit this month. Another 54 Starlink satellites were launched into space on Sunday night from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Space Force Station using SpaceX’s Falcon 9 reusable rocket.

    Last week, Musk tweeted that Starlink “is meant for peaceful use only,” in apparent reaction to Russia’s accusations about Western countries utilizing “elements of civilian, including commercial, infrastructure in outer space for military purposes” at a recent United Nations meeting.

    “It seems like our colleagues do not realize that such actions in fact constitute indirect involvement in military conflicts,” Konstantin Vorontsov, the head of the Russian delegation to the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs working group, said last week.

    Meanwhile, Musk has stated that he will seek an exception to US sanctions against Iran in order to provide Starlink access to the Middle Eastern country:

    “Internet access is an important tool for protesters and activists in Iran, which blocks many services like YouTube and many foreign media outlets in an effort to impose what the country describes as a halal internet, or one that conforms to its interpretation of Islamic law,” said WSJ.

    Starlink’s global expansion seems to be more extensive than what is depicted on the company’s map. What happens with “peaceful use only” applications remains to be seen.
