The mind of Elon Musk is as fantastic as his sky-high ambitions, and his latest venture is no less otherworldly.

Florida’s Space Coast will see several new launches this week, including the newest installment of 60 Starlink satellites that seek to bring Musk’s dream of fast and affordable internet to the far reaches of the Earth one step closer to reality, bringing the total to 700 out of the 12,000 satellites the program has been approved to have orbiting the planet.

Space Coast Launches

The Orlando Sentinel reported a high demand from future Starlink customers for in-home devices that Musk would sell for the network — 5 million for the U.S. on its own.

You'll also be able to catch several other launches before the month is out, and on August 26, dedicated launch watchers can see a United Launch Alliance Delta 44-Heavy rocket blast off at 2:16 a.m.

The day after, you can catch the SpaceX Falcon 9 take off at 7:19 p.m. with a satellite that will help emergency responders with radar imagery.
