New Scientist: Race to put internet into orbit

*New Scientist* magazine interviews radio amateur *James Cutler KF6RFX *as
part of their story on plans to launch hundreds of Internet satellites into
a 1200 km orbit

SpaceX immediately announced its own plan to do the same, building and
launching 4000 satellites to a similar altitude.
