Here’s a Tour of SpaceX’s Starship Launch Tower with Elon Musk [VIDEO]
After part 1 of an interview with Elon Musk about Starship was shared this month, the second part has been released and shares some updates directly from SpaceX head about Starlink’s new satellites.
Elon Musk was interviewed on YouTube channel Everyday Astronaut in a video shared on Thursday. We also get an incredible view from the top of the SpaceX Orbital Launch Tower.
In the video, Musk discusses several topics, including details about SpaceX’s upcoming second-generation Starlink 2.0 satellites.
The video’s host Tim Dodd asks Musk about what makes the Starlink 2.0 so much better, noting that they’re also physically larger.
Musk also noted that Starship needs to fly frequently to help get Starlink 2.0 off the ground substantially.
Multiple times, Musk notes how much more capable the second-generation satellites are, though they’ll still work with both first- and second-generation Starlink terminals.
SpaceX unveiled the second-generation Starlink dish and terminal last year, featuring a smaller overall build and a new removable cable.
