    Work is expected to crank up soon at OneWeb LLC’s Central Florida manufacturing plant to meet its goal to have hundreds of satellites in orbit by 2021.

    Arlington, Va.-based OneWeb on Feb. 27 started building its large group of satellites, known as a constellation, when the Russian-built Soyus rocket took six OneWeb satellites into space, launching from Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana.
