Starlink is another of Elon Musk’s brilliant ideas (some astronomers say it’s a bit too brilliant, as we shall see) — a constellation of thousands of small satellites in low Earth orbit that will provide internet access across the globe

On Thursday, when Elon Musk was online and tweeting about lighter matters than today's hot topic, I created a silly Twitter poll about Starlink. I asked, "Will Elon let me beta test Starlink?" All of the answers were variations of "yes."
