Elon Musk wants to connect RVs and trucks to the internet through SpaceX’s Starlix satellites

埃隆·马斯克希望通过SpaceX的星链卫星将房车和卡车与互联网连接起来


Musk clarified that the antenna will not be for “connecting Tesla cars to Starlix,” saying that the user “terminal is much too big.”

马斯克澄清说,天线不是用来“连接特斯拉汽车和星链”的,他说“用户终端太大了”。

“This is for aircraft, ships, large trucks & RVs,” Musk said.

“这主要用于飞机、船舶、大型卡车和房车”马斯克说。

Musk was responding to CNBC’s reporting that SpaceX requested authorization from the Federal Communications Commission to begin deploying antenna for its Starlix service on “moving vehicles.”

马斯克回应CNBC的报道,称SpaceX请求联邦通信委员会授权,开始在“移动的车辆”上部署星链服务天线。

Starlix is the company’s capital-intensive project to build an interconnected internet network with thousands of satellites, known in the space industry as a constellation, designed to deliver high-speed internet to consumers anywhere on the planet.

星链是该公司的资本密集型项目,旨在建立一个由数千颗卫星组成的互联网网络,在航天业被称为“星群”,旨在向地球上任何地方的消费终端提供高速互联网。

SpaceX director of satellite policy David Goldman wrote in a letter to the FCC on Friday that “the volume of traffic flowing over the world’s networks has exploded,” adding that “no longer are users willing to forego connectivity while on the move.”

SpaceX卫星政策主管大卫·戈德曼周五在给联邦通信委员会的一封信中写道,“全球网络的流量呈爆炸式增长”,并补充称,“用户不再愿意在移动的过程中放弃连接网络。”
