OneWeb has announced that it's filing for bankruptcy. The firm was responsible for launching several internet-providing satellites but the economic situation caused by COVID-19 caused it to fail.
Elon Musk's SpaceX has filed a new request to the FCC, asking the commission to use some of its internet-providing satellites at less than half of the altitude it had originally requested.
The satellite-based internet project was first revealed in May by a filing with the Federal Communications Commission. Set for launch in early 2019, Athena is meant to deliver internet from orbit.
