Meanwhile, Elan Musk's other company, SpaceX, is moving forward on a 10 billion dollar plan to start a worldwide Internet service made up of 4,400 satellites. SpaceX filed an application to the Federal Communications Commission, to launch the satellites to build the high speed network, which would orbit 750 miles above the earth.
