With Starlink internet, data is continuously being sent between a ground dish and a Starlink satellite orbiting 550km above. Furthermore, the Starlink satellite zooms across the sky at 27,000km/hr! How can the dish and satellite maintain a continuous connection? And then how is data sent back and forth? Well, in this video we're going to dive into the inner workings for the ground dish and Starlink satellites, and see how a beam of data is formed, how this beam is swept across the sky, and then finally what exactly is in that beam that allows for incredibly fast internet! This is an incredible feat of technology and engineering, so stick around!

How many shooting stars did you see throughout the video? Post what you counted and we'll pick a random correct comment to receive a prize. Also, check out the Creator's Comments found in the English (Canada) subtitles for many additional details. Note: you can access them via the options button -> transcript -> English(Canada). FAQ: Q1) Do the two phase shifts from beam steering and 64QAM mess each other up? A: No. For transmission, the data is encoded into the 64QAM signal and sent to all the beamformers where then the beam steering phase shift is added. Then the signal is sent to the front-end modules which increases the power for the patch antennas.

Hello Hello From Victoria Canada!!! I counted 25 shooting stars and there was a very fast little star at around (15:49ish Minutes) that I almost missed. I don't know if the contest is over or if you had anyone else see the littlest one, but his contest was a blast to do while enjoying the video. Thank you for sharing this with us all. Your work here is one of the best documentaries I have ever been fortunate to enjoy and learn so much from. I am new to your channel and if this is an example of your episodes, that I am going to see more of then I can't wait to see more. I hope you have great luck and stay happy and healthy in all your future endeavors.

@Richard Acevedo I have a BA in Applied Math And a BS in Computer Science. I too am concerned with the discussion of limiting the math, science and arts to focus on just building electronic devices. The arts do more to push the math and science than anything. An education is a "total mental" experience!

I know I sound like an echo here, but this was insanely quality production of the highest degree. The narrated content was incredibly cohesive, clear and easy to understand but the visual 3D animation deserves recognition in it's own right. Would you kindly tell me what software, team, or company you used to construct the visual content? I would like to put together a quality explainer video like this for a project I'm working on and don't prefer the cartoonist version which seems to be so very popular

Two way, Satellite tracking technology is not anything that new, but the refinement in Starlink avoiding moving parts certainly makes it interesting. The way it switches between different satellites and being able to act like the same connection is quite interesting. Your video is really good, it goes into great details and explains it all well. I would argue that it is complex, rather than complicated. The principles are not complicated, but the antenna systems is complex :) Thanks for the video.

This video got played by youtube autoplay for some reason, right after Veritasium video. I paused it at 0:55, because it way too annoying to see "beams" between satellite and consumer dish. Neither Starlink satellite nor the consumer device use lasers to communicate with each other, there is no line like beams.

As a satcom engineer with over 40 years of experience in the field, I can say that you did a really good job of distilling this information down to something a layperson can grasp. Well done. I would point out that in addition to receive only satellite TV antennas that communicate with geostationary satellites, there are also two way antennas that communicate to GSO satellites as well, along with other variants which provided two way communications with other non-geostationary satellite networks in different orbits.

@John W Thanks for sharing your experience with Magnavox. I once read a book called "Fumbling the Future" about how Xerox's CEO told his Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) that their inventions of the mouse and GUI were silly because no one would want a computer in their home.

@RideGasGas Thanks so much for sharing that. I always wondered when the punch cards went away. The only JCL I learned in school was enough for our Fortran jobs to run on the 370. Those jobs were on punch cards during the spring quarter of 1980. I didn't actually learn the tech behind it until Bellsouth promoted me from my job in supply to a system specialist (tier-2 support) in '85. Most of our systems (2,000 of them by the late '90s) were AT&T UNIX minicomputers but one of the systems we supported was an app on a mainframe. All used CRTs as you said. When I was in the USAF in the late '60s we supported analog computer hardware and one early digital system In school '79-'84, I learned BASIC, PL1, and Fortran but on the job '85-'04 what little programming we needed was in shell scripts. Nothing was compiled. Our jobs focused on system support at the OS level. It included datacom and front-end processors. Your stuff was probably a lot more fun. Ours was hands-on at first. That was the most fun 'til we went remote in the early '90s.

@Ron.V While I never actually programmed a computer with punch cards, I have carted hundreds of pounds of them to the trash. I worked as a janitor in high school at a Western Electric plant in Millard Nebraska. They used to load trash cans full of them which were then really hard to lift. At my first job after the Army (where I got started as a satcom tech) we programmed IBM mainframe via CRTs and keyboards so between 1975 and 1981 the punch cards went away. I learned System 370 assembly language, JCL (more like DOS batch file than an actual language), and APL. Fun stuff.

@Scott Ferguson SpaceX filed a radio frequency exposure analysis as part of their application to the FCC far a blanket license to operate Dishy and the newer rectangular version. Both antennas are well below both the FCC and international limits for exposure. Keep in mind that the antennas radiate power up in a narrow beam, so there is very little power behind the antenna or off to the sides. Also, at these frequencies there is very high attenuation of the radio frequency energy by the housing materials between the antenna and the living quarters inside. Even a normal dual pane window provides quite a bit of attention at these frequencies. This is one of the reasons Verizon’s 28 GHz 5G service is struggling.

Thank you, great video. Hopefully you will continue this set of videos. I am very interested in hearing how the Starlink satellite works, particularly how the satellites relay information through the constellation to later hit a ground station(s) and connect to the terrestrial network. I would also like to hear about how lasers (using light for data transfer in the vacuum of space) get used for connections between satellites.

Network engineer here, with a physics background. Refreshing to see an accurate, techy video that breaks down so much of the system. It's a rabbit hole of information but you managed to cover everything in enough detail to introduce it, while allowing the audience to choose whether they want to go further into the rabbit hole. Many of the techniques used by starlink are used in your home WiFi, or other systems you're familiar with. Starlink brings a lot of things together (including Elons infinite wallet) in a way that hasn't been done before.

​@Christ Goh - Technically yes, but in terms of cost and capacity, probably not. And that's ok, there are plenty of lower cost terrestrial internet providers with even higher speeds and lower latency, but those who travel a lot especially in places with little to no internet service, Starlink is a great option.

Small nitpicks - in the orbital animation at 2:50 TV satellites should be shown to be geostationary, orbiting above the same area as the earth rotates. This is important because it explains why TV dishes can point at a single point in the sky, while Starlink beams need to be electronically steered. Furthermore, while the earth is correctly shown as rotating counterclockwise from the north pole, both satellites are orbiting in the wrong direction, east to west, while nearly all satellites orbit west to east to take advantage of earth's velocity. Overall though, very nice video that explains complex electronic and communications concepts.

this is a very interesting explanation! Thanks a lot!!! I was looking for information how exactly electromagnetic waves can be done and now I easily learnt it in a few seconds!!! I also understood how to stear the wave-beam using the interferences and the phase-shifts in each antennas. So thank you so much!

I'm blown away by the complexity of this antenna and the whole Starlink technology. Branch Education does a great job explaining this to the common people. Thanks.

As an engineer and semi-physicist who understands these topics quite well, I was looking for a summary/visual to help explain it to less technical people. This is very well done, and unlike many presentations on the internet, there is no glaringly wrong information. A testament to the research done. Assumptions and simplifications are identified. Good job indeed.

This was WAY over my head, yet I enjoyed seeing the complexity of such a system. I have a very teeny tiny itsy-bitsy understanding of QAM and constellations since I dealt with it in my time in a CATV/Internet digital headend, but in no way fully understand it.

I hold high respect for your work mate because you're pointing people in the right direction. If there's one thing I've learnt recently is to remain calm especially when it comes to investment in cryptocurrency. Let's not panic and sell when when everything goes down and do not buy in euphoria when everything goes up. I advise everyone to forget predictions and start making profits now because future valuations are all speculations and guesses. The trade market is unstable and you can't easily tell if it's going bullish or bearish. While Myself and my colleagues are trading without fear of incurring loses, others are being patient for the price of skyrocket. It all depends on the pattern you follow. Thanks to Mr Harvey Barrett FX for his trading tips, he's the best broker I've ever come across.

In my final year of Engineering, while watching this video, I finally feel like all I've been learning in school is in fact useful 👌 😅 . It's all about application, which is where I feel universities need to do more of, I'm guessing that's why there are Masters and PhD programs Finally also understand why upload speed sucks, hopeful for future technologies that will access that

@Martin Kuliza Hello Martin! Thank you for all your replies and comments, Martin! Greatly appreciated. I've been getting busier these days, so can't spend too much time trolling around on BRvid. However, thank you again for your comments. Just a few observations: * How many computer programmers does it take to change a light bulb?💡 A: none - it's a hardware problem. (probably the first computer riddle, if not the lamest one). * Disk drive companies: In the late 1970s an IBM engineer named Sirjang L. Tandon devised a way to place a read/write head on the opposite side of a floppy 💾 disk, creating the double-sided disk drive. His superiors told him to put the drive on a shelf where it collected dust. As a result, he left IBM and started his own company, Tandon Magnetics, which I worked for after high school. This spawned a dozen disk drive companies in the northwest corner of Los Angeles, where I eventually worked for half of them. Of course, when Seagate Technology began producing 5¼-inch hard disc drives, these floppy firms also jumped in. Most of these companies are now defunct, although Tandon's claim to fame was providing the initial floppy disk drives for the IBM PC, which debuted in 1981. From 1984 I then worked at a company called Micom systems, which produced high-speed modems, multiplexers and APBX equipment. So, Southern California did have and still has a vibrant electronics industry, although much of it has been offshored to countries with cheaper labor and less environmental regulations. I'm sure the same trend happened in Australia 🇦🇺 as well. * Yep my college buddy was part of that 90s IT boom on the Gold Coast... he raved about Bondi Beach ⛱ and all that stuff. Haven't heard from him since, though... maybe a shark got him. Well, that's about it, mate! Enjoy the rest of your week, Martin, and cheers!

@theodoro89 ok,, 1. there are also job titles called HELPDESK ENGINEER (and yet they don't build desks) 2. Programmer is COMPUTER SCIENCE DEGREE it's not Program engineering 3. as to why this keeps continuing, i don't know, it's only recently that a few people commented, but yes it's an old post 4. i don't think a job should include someone's degree title, these are not my rules, I'm just saying there is no degree course that is called Antenna Engineering. as for jobs, well, Employers can call the job title whatever they want Antenna engineer Aerial Fixer guy TV Thingy engineer they can literally do what they like however courses are regulated and there is a standard to the naming of engineering courses, that's what i'm referring to

Would be nice to know how signal continuity is maintained between satellites. That is, when one satellite goes out of reach of any particular dish, how does the next satellite take up where the last one left off and a signal stays consistent and constant.

I first encountered phase steering 40 years ago. It's amazing to see how far it's come. Likewise the first 64QAM kit I used back then was a 7 foot tall 19 inch rack for 140Mb/s @ 12GHz terrestrial linking and only went 20km. 3 years later there were 7 of them in the same 7 foot tall rack Each rack drew close to 3kW for 200mW transmit power As an aside, audio modems used 64QAM for 33k6 and DSL uses hundreds of discrete 64 QAM carriers. The difference is the carrier frequency and symbol rate
Michael Meichtry

Yes- QAM has been around for a long time. In the 1980s I worked with it dealing with dial-up modems in order to increase the amount of data sent across the network. Whether terrestrial or wireless, the QAM technique works in the same manner.

@MISC BITS I see, quite often if an obvious idea seems good, its almost definitely been tried before
MISC BITS 7 meses atrás
@SomeRandomPiggo phase modulation and frequency modulation are closely related. Frequency shift keying was the original method of modulating signals in most cases The problem is that frequency modulation generates masses of sidebands and ends up being spectrally fairly inefficient (AM is inefficient from a power point of view)

Wow, so amazing! Thank you very much for your hard work! Verry well put together and accurate informations about this subject! Subscribed, liked and commented, because I can't get enough of watching your videos! This is so amazing! I remember when I used to study Electronics and Telecommunications in the University, and I can say that my teachers weren't able to reach this level of detail and clarity you go into these videos! Please keep up the good work! Now I can confidently say that I've better understood how antennas and this technology work! Science and technology is so fascinating!

I'm so Disappointed and Upset that I've Never known about this channel, Luckily this video popped up in my suggestions. I Don't think I've Ever seen such an Amazingly Beautiful Video on such a complex subject. The Graphics, The Simplistic Explanations, The ability to cut through the fat and make such a concise video that makes perfect sense and the Fact that Even more info was put in the Closed Captions (Canadian) is Next Level! This Channel creates videos that Huge Media Companies would spend Tons of Money on with a Team of Hundreds of Employees and still wouldn't come close. This channel should be Mandatory Viewing in schools and Funded by the Department of Education or something similar!
