Athena get ready for Facebook's satellite

Athena: Το Facebook, το οποίο εγκατέλειψε τα σχέδια κατασκευής αεροσκαφών, για την παροχή πρόσβασης στο in remote parts of the world, is once again pursuing the launch of satellites.

According to Wired, the Federal Communications Commission (Federal Commission) met several times with representatives of Facebook and its affiliates to discuss launching satellites that will fly low on Earth.Athena

Οι πληροφορίες αναφέρουν ότι το κοινωνικό θέλει στείλει στο διάστημα τον Athena, ένα δορυφόρο για την παροχή διαδικτύου, στις αρχές του 2019. Ο δορυφόρος έχει σχεδιαστεί για να “προσφέρει αποτελεσματικά ευρυζωνική πρόσβαση σε περιοχές που δεν καλύπτονται σε ολόκληρο τον κόσμο” και όπως φαίνεται το has been filed with the FCC under the name PointView Tech LLC.

Το Facebook θα συνεργαστεί με την SpaceX, την διαστημική εταιρεία του Elon . Of course, this is not the first time that Facebook has tried to send a satellite into space. In 2016, a satellite of the social network was loaded onto a SpaceX rocket. Facebook's satellite was meant to provide connectivity across the African region, but SpaceX's rocket exploded during launch.
Στη συνέχεια, το Facebook έστεψε την προσοχή της στο project , ένα drone πάλι για την παροχή διαδικτύου. Πρόσφατα όμως ανακοίνωσε ότι stops the project.

The Athena satellite is a research project and Facebook reported to Wired:

We have nothing to report about the project at this time, but we believe that the satellite will be an important factor in the next generation of broadband infrastructure, enabling broadband in rural areas where Internet connectivity is poor or non-existent.

Facebook's protagonist in this project is, of course, Alphabet, which has also abandoned a program with internet-link distribution balloons. Let's say SpaceX seems to be the winner of the case as it has launched already originals for a network of thousands of low-track satellites.
