What a fabulous step and news now amazon is leading one step ahead i.e one step closer to space.
With the goal of broadcasting internet service to earth, Amazon received government approval to put more than 3,200 satellites into orbit.
Amazon said this internet service will cover the untouched areas of world those are far from internet connectivity, It could also become a new business for Amazon and start up ideas for other startup and vendors, selling internet service to people or companies.
Amazon executive Dave Limp said in a written statement, “We have heard so many stories lately about people who are unable to do their job or complete schoolwork because they don’t have reliable internet at home”.
Project Kuiper called Amazon said it will spend $10 billion on the initiative. It’s opening a research facility in Redmond, Washington, where the satellites will be designed and tested.
That would be about twice the profit that the Seattle company made in its most recent three-month financial reporting period.
Other companies have already put satellites into orbit, including SpaceX, the rocket company owned by Tesla CEO Elon Musk. SpaceX received government approval for the project in 2018.
Keeping the resulting emissions out of the earth’s atmosphere, Space is a major focus of Amazon’s founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man. He privately owns a space exploration company and has spoken of, at some point in the distant future, the potential of relocating manufacturing and other heavy industries to space.
Amazon didn’t say when it expects to have Project Kuiper operating, but the Federal Communications Commission, which approved the initiative on Thursday, said half of its satellites must be in orbit by July 2026.
