Starlink service scheduled for South Korea later this year

SpaceX will begin offering Starlink service in South Korea by the spring of this year.

The article, from a South Korea news outlet, is generally negative about Starlink’s possibilities, mostly because its cost is much higher than that already available with coverage that includes 80% of the country. Nonetheless, Starlink will still be an option to those regions not yet served.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.


Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    John Kerry mentioned SpaceX in a WEF speech that they will use SpaceX ???

    “We modelled it somewhat on the experience on what happened with vaccines, the government said ‘we’ll pay for it, build it,’ and the same thing with SpaceX, if you build it we are going to use it and we’ll pay for it.

    “People who were putting capital at risk knew that they could get a return on that capital or at least cover their expenses in the case of something like vaccines, where human life was so at risk. Well, human life is at risk now in the context of the challenges of the global climate crisis,” Kerry warned”

    Human life is at risk… Therefore you need to sacrifice your cars, meat, heating and cooling your homes… all to prevent 1 1/2° global warming from CO2 which will destroy the world…. NOT!

    We have “saved the world” before using this method of thought and logic, was not the world saved by throwing virgins in volcanoes? Sacrificing their first born to beelzebub? Burning witches? And let’s not forget the great sacrifice that we owe to the Aztecs and Mayans for 1000 years sacrificing their slaves so that the sun would come up every day! They did their part to save the world, now it’s our turn…
    What/who are you willing to sacrifice? (and you thought sacrificing the world economy by shutting down was enough… Just the beginning!) as the world economy collapses, life savings evaporating, property rights as well as personal rights including the right to your own body are going away… (If you do not own your own body, you own nothing….) and you’ll be made to praise your masters for your happiness… Big brother AI is watching you.
