Amazon’s 1st Kuiper megaconstellation satellites will launch on a ULA Atlas V rocket

Amazon has selected United Launch Alliance (ULA) to start launching its megaconstellation of internet satellites to space.

ULA will participate in nine launches of Project Kuiper, which Amazon hopes will eventually send 3,236 advanced satellites to low Earth orbit. The number of satellites ULA will send aloft was not disclosed in a press release from the two organizations, nor was the value of the launch contract.
