Starlinks in the payload processing building are about to be loaded onto a cargo truck. The Starlink box moved out earlier and may have some loaded into it, but looks like most of these are about to go away for now.

As I replied to his tweet, you can see they loaded something on the truck, but it's not satellites, it appears to be some kind of metal jig/stand.

Related to the terminals, STMicro of Switzerland just published its 2022 annual report.  For the first time, it stated that SpaceX is among its top 10 customers.  In 2022, it doubled capital expenditures (plant and equipment) in order to, in part, handle growth from SpaceX.

Here's a bit of related STMicro marketing material at pages 17-24.

Do we have any more detailed information about the laser inter-sattelite links? Like distance, mirror diameter, pointing accuracy, power, bandwith... If Elon expects the first Starship flight to Mars in 4 years, then improvement of laser communication is needed by quite a few order of magnitude in a few years. Is there any info about this?
