ANKARA (AA) - Billionaire Elon Musk announced on Friday that his company SpaceX will provide internet service for 19,000 rural schools in Brazil and environmental monitoring in the Amazon.

"Super excited to be in Brazil for launch of Starlink for 19,000 unconnected schools in rural areas & environmental monitoring of Amazon!" Musk wrote in his Twitter account on Friday.

Starlink, a satellite constellation operated by SpaceX, provides internet access with more than 2,400 mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit to 32 countries.

Musk, the CEO of SpaceX, is also expected to meet Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, according to Teslarati, a California-based multi-platform media company that publishes news on Tesla, SpaceX, and ventures affiliated with Musk.

The Brazilian government announced in November that it was considering to provide satellite internet service to indigenous communities, schools, and health centers in the Amazon, according to Teslarati.​​​​​​​
