SpaceX satellite and rocket explosions can and have happened. Despite warnings, opposition, accidents and almost accidents, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continues to ignore all of this and approve tens of thousands of satellites and similar vehicles from SpaceX and other companies to provide internet coverage – including 5G – from space (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13).
Some good news – earlier this month SpaceX delayed a satellite fleet launch due to rocket “recovery issue” and hasn’t issued a new launch date.
SpaceX delays next Starlink satellite fleet launch due to rocket ‘recovery issue’
A new launch date has not yet been set.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was scheduled to launch 60 new Starlink satellites for the company’s growing megaconstellation at 2:19 p.m. EDT (1819 GMT) Thursday from Pad 39A of NASA’s historic Kennedy Space Center in Florida. But 15 minutes before the planned liftoff, SpaceX scrubbed the mission.
“Standing down from today’s Starlink launch due to recovery issue; vehicle and payload remain healthy,” SpaceX representatives announced in a Twitter update.
The White House recently issued a directive that requires manufacturers to better monitor and safeguard satellites and similar vehicles. Only time will tell if this will do any good.
The FCC is supposed to protect the public from the telecom industry. Their history of doing the exact opposite predates the Trump administration. Lawsuits have been filed against the agency for NOT protecting Americans from unsafe levels of radiation as well as 5G deployment on the ground (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and in space.
