Downloads of Elon Musk’s Starlink app have surged in Ukraine as locals try and continue connectivity to the outside world.
The billionaire Musk sent the Starlink satellite technology to Ukraine in response to a public request from the country’s government, over concerns about internet disruptions.
The Starlink app has been installed about 76,000 times in Ukraine — up 280% from the preceding two-week period.
Most downloads came from Ukraine, the firm added, based on data from Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play store.
The service has been so critical in Ukraine that Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar, R-Fla., is making a personal appeal to Musk to bring satellite internet technology to Cuba, much like he did in Ukraine.
“I thank Mr. Elon Musk, and I would love for him to do the same thing for Cuba,” Salazar told Fox News Digital in a recent interview. “We were trying to reach out to him and his technology because it’s basically sending the message to those people: You are not alone.”

Elon Musk’s Tesla was blasted into space five years ago
Musk’s Tesla is currently floating through the galaxy
Exactly five years ago,Elon Musk’s Tesla roadster was launched into space to travel on an endless joy ride through the cosmic wilderness.
And how’s this for a journey.
On its anniversary, estimates suggest the vehicle has completed three and one quarter loops around the sun and is sitting 326 kilometres from Earth.
It’s also logged up more than 4 billion kilometres, mostly travelling through a barren vacuum.
In space terms, it did get close to Mars at one point – passing within 8 million ks of the planet – or about 20 times the distance between the Earth and the moon.
Although, it’s difficult to say where the vehicle is exactly with or whether it’s still even in one piece.
It is possible the roadster may have been hit by a meteoroid or eroded by radiation. #trending #fetured
