I think this is an incredible project with some real potential benefits with education, health, weather, disaster recovery, organization, the list just goes on and on!
- Are there any white paper/design notes for how the system will be organized? Geostationary orbiting satellites or something more complex with a flyover broadcast system (kinda like a TV guide channel)?
- Will anyone be able to add their own satellite to the network?
- what’s the target bandwidth for any given satellite?
- if multiple satellites are used to carry a piece of content (HD video broadcast for example), will the stream be split up by an elegant failover system, one satellite carrying audio, one carrying half of the video lines, another carrying the other half etc?
