Just joined @SpaceX as Director, Starlink Sales. I'll help bring @SpaceXStarlink (space internet, http://starlink.com ) to the world.
I wrote my grad thesis on commercial human spaceflight, but left the industry in 2008. I had lost faith that interesting space things would happen during my career. SpaceX has changed the game, and I believe again.
Most folks don't know about Starlink yet, but you will. We're building high speed internet beamed from space to everywhere on Earth. Powered by thousands of satellites, which SpaceX has made cheap enough to build and launch at scale. https://twitter.com/SpaceX/status/1291626962411126784
I think the Starlink global Go To Market is the most interesting GTM in human history, and I'm stoked to be on board. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/08/01/spacex-starlink-extraordinary-demand-with-nearly-700000-interested.html
SpaceX says Starlink internet has 'extraordinary demand,' with nearly 700,000 interested in service
SpaceX says its nascent satellite internet service called Starlink has already seen "extraordinary demand" from potential customers.https://www.cnbc.com/2020/08/01/spacex-starlink-extraordinary-demand-with-nearly-700000-interested.html
We're going to get the other half of humanity online, then use the proceeds to get to Mars . We choose to do all these things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. Let's go!
