In addition to billions of people in "underserved communities around the world" receiving high-speed Internet access, Elon Musk's vision could drive the ambitions of SpaceX's sister company Tesla. Manny Shar, Head of Analytics at Bryce Space and Technology, told Express.co.uk, "I see the potential for Tesla with Starlink." When a Tesla vehicle rolls off the line, it's with an AT & T LTE over the Internet connected mobile connection similar to a mobile phone.
This allows the transfer of Google Maps data to the car and supports the decisions of the driver assistance system.
The Starlink "mega-constellation" of broadband-emitting satellites will open up the amount of data that vehicles connected to the Internet can use.
Mr. Shar said: " One of the challenges is the terminal to receive Starlink data, so the terminal has the size of a pizza box. The technical and design challenge is to install one of them in a Tesla vehicle. "
With Starlink, Tesla could have created unrestricted high-speed Internet access in all regions, which would improve the autopilot system in fully self-driving mode, providing the potential for autonomous transport vehicles in the Starlink-covered regions.

Shar added, "The 5G technology will focus largely on the essentials. Therefore, the initial value for Starlink will be in remote regions where the operation of a fiber optic network is very costly. "
Currently, there is little or no broadband high-speed infrastructure outside the US for Internet-connected electric vehicles. Concentrated urban areas.
Tesla could make billions of dollars with SpaceX's Starlink.
SpaceX hopes to leverage Starlink's profits over the long-term for the construction of the spaceship and the super-heavy hawk, which are required for the human being's colony on Mars.
Regarding the technology needed to bring people to Mars, Shar said, "In order to build the spacecraft and the Mars colonial transporter, they need a big revenue channel moment, in which SpaceX pays £ 3 billion annually Market launches, but they need more to get to Mars. "
Elon Musk informed reporters that an Internet satellite network for consumers" such as SpaceX can generate revenue that can be used for development more and more advanced rockets and spaceships.
The CEO of SpaceX says Starlink, if all goes well, could generate tens of billions of revenue each year for SpaceX.
That's far more than the revenue from the start of the business. with a maximum annual amount of GBP 3 billion.
