SpaceX using BFS to put a satellite into orbit

BFS could be used to launch satellites into orbit. “Having a 9-meter diameter vehicle is a huge enabler for new satellites. We can actually send something that is almost nine meters in diameter to orbit. For example, if you want to have a new Hubble Space Telescope, you can send a mirror that has 10 times the surface area of the current Hubble as a single unit, doesn’t have to unfold or anything. Or you can send a large number of small satellites. You can also collect old satellites and space debris” says Elon Musk.
