Spacex to Begin Launching  Satellites in July

New ‘Shell’ of Starlink

SpaceX could begin 

launching the fourth of five orbital ‘shells’ of its first Starlink constellation as early as July

SpaceX was preparing to 

start launching “Group 3” of its first 4408-satellite Starlink constellation as early as July 2022.

SpaceX applied for

 communications permits known as “special temporary authority” licenses or STAs for a launch known as “Starlink Group 3-1

“Group 3” refers to 

one of five orbital “shells” that make up SpaceX’s 4408-satellite first-generation Starlink constellation.

 Each shell can be

 thought of shell – a thin layer of satellites more or less evenly distributed around the entire sphere of the Earth.

Oddly, SpaceX also 

launched a single batch of 51 Group/Shell 2 Starlink satellites in September 2021
