Facebook is ready to go to Space !

TECHNOLOGY

Despite delays, Facebook‘s ambitious plan to build a constellation of satellites isn’t dead – and it could launch the first one into space as soon as March 2020. In 2014 The Largest Social Networking Platform Facebook announced that it formed a team called Connectivity Lab to bring Facebook beyond The Sky.

Facebook has been really growing at an immeasurably rapid pace, and as with most tech companies, the social media platform has started looking into options that would undoubtedly lead to even more expansion. Much like what Jeff Bezos of Amazon has been thinking about doing, Facebook has started to look into moving into space as well, although their intentions for doing so are decidedly different than what the Amazon CEO might be looking into since his goals are to fund actual space travel and possibly to start to colonize space as well in a really big way.

Facebook, on the other hand, is looking to launch satellites that would make it so that the whole world would be able to use the internet that these satellites would be transmitting. This would be a huge level up in terms of the way that we are able to connect with one another, so much so that it could prove to be quite the game-changer in ways that no one else would have seen coming. Facebook has had this plan for several years now, but as you can probably imagine planning to go to space is not quite as easy as all that and there are a lot of regulations that need to be followed as well as permissions that need to be obtained.

In order to be able to start launching the satellites that would end up fulfilling Facebook’s grand vision, the social media platform had to get permission from the Federal Communications Commission which handles such affairs in the United States. In spite of numerous delays that were associated with a wide variety of logistical issues, Facebook has successfully managed to file the requisite paperwork with the FCC which seems to indicate that the company is finally going to be able to start work in earnest on its first satellite launch, as reported by Businessinsider.
