Musk’s Starlink to stay active in Ukraine despite funding woes



In a show of good faith to the Ukrainian government, Elon Musk has stated that SpaceX will not be shutting off its Starlink satellite internet service even if the company does not receive funding from the United States Defense Department.

This pledge comes as a relief to Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov, who has been a vocal supporter of SpaceX and Starlink.

Starlink is a key player in providing telecommunication services in Ukraine, which has been embroiled in conflict in recent years. The service has only been active in the country for less than a year, but it has already made a significant impact. Last spring, SpaceX began delivering terminals for the satellite internet service to Kyiv. These terminals have allowed the city to stay connected despite hostile conditions.

Musk’s tweet came in response to questions about whether or not the United States government would continue to fund SpaceX’s efforts in Ukraine. The Defense Department has been a key supporter of SpaceX, but it has yet to make a decision about continued funding.

While it remains to be seen whether or not the Defense Department will provide more funding for SpaceX, one thing is certain: Starlink will remain operational in Ukraine regardless of what happens.

Thanks to Musk’s commitment, Kyiv and other parts of the country will be able to stay connected no matter what.

Elon Musk has pledged that SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet service will remain active in Ukraine regardless of whether or not the company receives additional funding from the United States Defense Department.

This is good news for Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov, who has been a vocal supporter of both SpaceX and Starlink.

The service has only been operational in Ukraine for a little over six months, but it has already made a big impact by helping Kyiv stay connected despite hostile conditions.

Did the Simpsons predict Musk’s Twitter takeover?



New Twitter boss Elon Musk claims The Simpsons predicted his takeover years ago

Elon Musk has alluded to the fact that The Simpsons predicted his takeover of Twitter in a 2015 episode.

The episode titled “The Musk who fell to Earth” showcases Lisa Simpson feeding birds in a letter box with the label “Home Tweet Home.”

During the episode, Musk flies in on his rocket ship before meeting the Simpsons family.

Before Musk leaves, the show throws to the bird house. Lisa Simpson then says “I guess humanity wants its change one bird house at a time.”

Fans of the series have been quick to jump on its so-called prediction capabilities. They often draw parallels between the episodes and monumental events in history.

Lovers of the show are convinced it predicted Donald Trump’s Presidential run, Disney’s purchase of Fox and the 9/11 attacks.

More recently, they’re certain the show predicted England and America’s 2022 World Cup match in an 1997 episode.
