SpaceX is supposedly a month or two away from bankruptcy. After lobbing thousands of satellites into space in low earth orbit (supposedly for internet) they suddenly fear bankruptcy.

So what is starlink really for? Autonomous drones? 'Cloud' servers to house an AI? Uplinks for the vaxxed?

Whatever it is, i have never believed the ISP story. It's almost as ridiculous as believing CERN is for smashing atoms.

From a logistic pov, lets assume a buttlerian jihad happens, and we need to fight AI. The AI having the communicating infrastructure in the sky would be a lot harder to destroy compared to just cables on the ground or undersea. Going in the sky is a lot harder.
