(Reuters) - Elon Musk's Starlink, the satellite unit of SpaceX, is back up after an outage that affected thousands of users, the company said on Tuesday.

"The network issue has been fully resolved," Starlink said in a post on X.

Starlink's services were down for about an hour earlier today, affecting 41,393 users, according to outage tracking website Downdetector.com.

SpaceX's Starlink, which owns around 60% of the roughly 7,500 satellites orbiting Earth, is dominant in the satellite internet sphere.
