SpaceX may partner with Facebook, Verizon on Mars mission

Billionaire entrepreneur & innovator Elon Musk-led SpaceX is reportedly planning to join forces with tech giants Facebook and Verizon for its ambitious Mars mission.

According to a newly published report by GameNGuide, Mr. Musk is in contact with Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg regarding the company’s Mars mission. Telecommunications giant Verizon is also expected to join in efforts.

However, the report should be taken with a pinch of slat as it has not been confirmed yet. It is possible that the partnership mayn’t be initially for the Mars mission.

Earlier this month, SpaceX filed an application with the FCC for the launch of 4,425 satellites designed to provide a range of broadband and communications services for residential, commercial as well as governmental purposes worldwide.

The application stated, “Once fully optimized through the Final Deployment, the system will be able to provide high bandwidth (up to 1 Gbps per user), low latency broadband services for consumers and businesses in the U.S. and globally.”

In case the federal agency approves the application, it would greatly benefit tech giants Facebook and Verizon if their speculated partnership with SpaceX becomes a reality.
