Amazon lines up dozens of launches to put thousands of Kuiper satellites in orbit

Ready for another 3,000 satellites to hit the skies? You’d better be. Episode #27 of “The world is not enough!”.

Amazon is finally taking decisive action on its Kuiper communications satellite constellation, securing the rights to as many as 83 launches from United Launch Alliance, Arianespace, and of course Blue Origin. Interestingly, none of the launch vehicles set to be used have flown before — but there’s plenty of time to change that as Amazon’s 3,236-strong constellation takes shape.
