Mark Zuckerberg announced yesterday that Facebook will launch its first internet satellite into space and SpaceX will assist!
Tech giants like Facebook and Google are racing to launch their satellites to provide internet connection to remove areas of the world.
Mark said the satellite AMOS-6 is expected to liftoff in the second half of 2016 with the help of SpaceX.
Facebook chose Africa’s Sub-Saharan as their first coverage area to run trials.
Internet as we know it today will soon be redefined by such initiatives that will take us even a step closer to a truly connected Earth!
I am so excited to witness the future unfold.
