Musk's SpaceX Restoring Tonga's Internet
The billionaire's satellite venture is working to fix the
connectivity of the Pacific Island, after a tsunami destroyed
large swathes of the nation.
Tonga's underwater cable was severed by the huge volcanic
eruption in January. The Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai covered much
of the island in ash, leaving thousands without the ability to
contact family and complicated rescue efforts.
"A SpaceX team is now in Fiji establishing a Starlink gateway
station to reconnect Tonga to the world," Fiji's Attorney-
General said on Twitter.
