After delays because of bad weather, SpaceX launched the first batch of satellites that will eventually form its Starlink broadband-internet network. Its boss, Elon Musk, lauded the achievement, SpaceX’s heaviest payload yet. Not everyone was happy. Around 12,000 satellites will be deployed by the mid- 2020s. They operate in low orbit and are brighter than expected, prompting concerns from astronomers about obstructed telescope observations.
SpaceX发射了第一批卫星,此前因恶劣天气推迟了发射活动。这些卫星最终将形成其Starlink宽带互联网网络。该公司埃隆·马斯克对此表示盛赞,称这是SpaceX迄今为止最大的有效载荷。并不是人人对此喜闻乐见。到本世纪20年代中期,大约将部署1.2万颗卫星。它们绕低轨道运行,比预期的还要明亮,这引起天文学家对望远镜观测受阻的担忧。

Ms Bezos made the commitment to the Giving Pledge, an initiative started by Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates through which the super-rich can donate some of their fortune to worthy causes.
