Elon Musk Wants To Launch 4,000 Satellites That Will Provide Internet From Space

Alternative title: Elon Musk Wants To Launch 4,000 Satellites To Control Your Every Move.

That’s right people: mind control. 4,000 inescapable satellites sounds like enough firepower to get a start on that.

Just kidding. It’s really the aliens that will brainwash us to become their slaves.

I'm not saying it was aliens... but it was aliens.

In all seriousness, I’m stoked about Musk’s project. There have been other people/companies with ridiculous amounts of money that have tackled this in the past, and there are numerous financial and logistical obstacles in the way yet, but I think this is a step in the right direction.

Musk seems to be looking to tackle the financial problems first – their satellites are less expensive that those of previous attempts. Size and material costs have been minimized, so hopefully his project gets a little traction, at least. Internet anywhere? Yes, please.

What do you think, readers? Are you excited, or do you think there are too many obstacles to have even a hope of succeeding?
