"Amazon bought three rocket launches from SpaceX for its Project Kuiper internet satellites, the tech giant announced on Friday.
The move is a surprise from Amazon, given the company’s Kuiper system aims to compete with Elon Musk’s Starlink in the satellite broadband market.
SpaceX, the most active rocket operator in the world, has been adamant that it will launch Starlink competitors on its rockets." https://www.cnbc.com/2023/12/01/amaz...t-project.html

After 96 successful launches last year @SpaceX makes it's first @Starlink related launch of 2024 carrying six satellites capable of direct to phone communication. Elon Musk: "This will allow for mobile phone connectivity anywhere on Earth.

Note, this only supports ~7Mb per beam and the beams are very big, so while this is a great solution for locations with no cellular connectivity, it is not meaningfully competitive with existing terrestrial cellular networks."

IM-1 Mission Nova-C Lunar Lander Successfully Enroute to the Moon Following its Launch on SpaceX’s Falcon 9

"Intuitive Machines, Inc. (Nasdaq: LUNR, LUNRW) (“Intuitive Machines”) (“Company”), a leading space exploration, infrastructure, and services company, has announced its IM-1 mission Nova-C class lunar lander has launched on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and successfully commissioned in space by establishing a stable attitude, solar charging, and radio communications contact with the Company’s mission operations center in Houston. ...The Intuitive Machines IM-1 mission is the Company’s first attempted lunar landing as part of NASA’s Commercial Lunar Payload Services (“CLPS”) initiative, a key part of NASA’s Artemis lunar exploration efforts.

And an Air Force mission, and a StarLink mission. Three missions all in last two days. All boosters successfully landed. One for the 18th time. That is the cool part to me. Never get tired of watching the 'landings'! Don't think any of there competitors launch as many a year or even have the capability....

"Don't think any of there competitors launch as many a year or even have the capability....", not yet for sure but I've read that the Chinese are working feverishly to replicate first stage recovery.

Cell phone to satellite is coming. I wonder if the big telcos are anxious?

Partial success so far, failed engine re-ignition on the booster at least no 'rapid unscheduled disassembly' (RUD.)
