Todd Shields Published 12:29 PM EST Nov 15, 2018 Elon Musk’s SpaceX won permission to deploy more than 7,000 satellites, far more than all operating spacecraft currently aloft, from U.S. regulators who also moved to reduce a growing risk from space debris as skies grow more crowded. Space Exploration Technologies Corp. has two test satellites aloft, and it earlier won permission for a separate set of 4,425 satellites – which like the 7,518 satellites authorized Thursday are designed to provide broadband communications.

But money might not matter to those who oversee the world of tequila: Mexico’s Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT). In case you missed it, on Oct. 12 Musk tweeted out “Teslaquila coming soon,” along with what he said was a “visual approximation” of what the label and bottle would look like.
