Don't use your own rocket? Amazon will use ULA rocket to launch 3236 satellites

On April 20, the US e-commerce company Amazon announced on Monday, local time, that it will use United Launch Alliance rockets to put 3,236 Internet satellites into orbit, thereby providing low-cost broadband Internet access services to remote areas of the world. .

Amazon said in a blog post on Monday that ULA’s Atlas 5 rocket will carry out nine launches. Amazon said it has invested $10 billion in a satellite network called Project Kuiper, and more than 500 employees are doing this work.


Amazon said: "Building such a large-scale satellite network is not easy. We need multiple launch vehicles and launch partners to support our deployment plan."

The Atlas 5 launch vehicle is also used by NASA for various missions. ULA is a joint venture between Boeing and Lockheed Martin, which mainly provides launch services for satellite and space missions. Amazon's "Project Kuiper" will lift off from Launch Pad 41 in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' private space company Blue Origin is also developing its own rockets, including the long-delayed "New Glen" rocket. (Chenchen)
