Amazon plans to launch 83 Kuiper satellites into orbit

Amazon announced what it says is the largest deal in commercial space history, signing contracts with three companies to launch 83 of its Kuiper internet satellites. It is reported by CNBC.

The company signed contracts for 38 launches with United Launch Alliance, a joint venture between Boeing and Lockheed Martin, 18 launches with European company Arianespace, and 12 launches with Blue Origin, with an option for 15 additional launches with a private venture owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Project Kuiper is Amazon's plan to build a network of more than 3,000 satellites in low Earth orbit to provide high-speed internet anywhere in the world. In 2020, the US Federal Communications Commission approved Amazon's system, which the company says will "invest more than $10 billion."
