No, unfortunately we can't go to the moon anymore. We lost that ability when we abandoned our Apollo program.

Are u using a router for wifi?  Sometimes it is a router issue and not Exede at all.  Can u do a speed test hooked directly to the modem?  Just some things I have tried

I’m sure she was disappointed to learn that the Apollo program has been discontinued. Maybe her speeds will improve now.

The saying use to be, "we can send a man to the moon but we can't make a good cup of coffee."  I hated that one to.

After this week the saying will be updated to:

"we can launch a Tesla Roadster into heliocentric orbit, but..."

Maybe it can take a swing by Viasat-2 and fully deploy those antennas... but a speed of 0 to 17000 MPH in 8 minutes isn't too bad.

I hope oneweb beats spacex to the Leo constellation business. That way I won’t feel like I’m funding sending cars to orbit Mars.

Is the antenna issue going to delay the new plan arrival dates? Does anybody know if they need to fix that first?

We don't believe at this time it'll affect the service.

"Falcon Heavy is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. eastern, with weather forecasts projecting an 80 percent chance of acceptable weather. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted Sunday night that the launch remained on schedule, and also revealed that the Tesla will have a space suited mannequin sitting in the drivers seat."

I found out last week that the earth is flat and Hollywood faked the moon landings.
