Elon Musk’s “Pez Dispenser” Starship Will Deploy Next-Gen Starlink Satelllites

“Maybe we should make an actual Starship model that dispenses pez for our merch store,” tweeted Elon Musk.

It is another controversial idea of the world’s richest man who, this time, plans to deploy his next-generation Starlink satellites through SpaceX’s Starship, which looks remarkably like a Pez dispenser and will operate similarly as well.

The Starship is expected to be the biggest and mightiest space transportation system that would take cargoes and people to the moon and the Red Planet. It would also carry out other missions, which include the deployment of Starlink 2.0 satellites, which are now bigger and better.

Falcon 9, which has launched the first-gen Starlink satellites, would no longer be practical to use for the next-gen internet satellites that Musk wants to send into space in bigger batches.

Starship is Musk’s ideal spaceship to fulfill this purpose, including his dream of sending human missions to Mars and other distant destinations.

Even though the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has already completed its Space Launch System (SLS) megarocket after more than a decade of construction, the Starship will still hold the record of being the biggest rocket on the planet. And just like SpaceX’s other rockets, Starship will also be more affordable than NASA’s rocket and mission costs due to its fully reusable transportation system.

The area where SLS may beat Starship is in the launch date, with SLS possibly making an August launch that is a week earlier than Starship’s target date.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has already given permission to SpaceX to continue its Starship work at Starbase in Texas under the condtion that the the company assumes more than 75 actions to mitigate the effects of the Starship operations in the area, which is rich in biodiversity.

But SpaceX still needs a launch license from FAA for Starship’s orbital flight, that is why it cannot be ascertained at the moment if the launch would happen in August or September.
