Expert warnings about satellites and similar vehicles adding to already dangerous levels of Space Junk are NOT new. There are also safer ways to offer high speed internet coverage than satellites and Americans HAVE ALREADY PAID for it (see 1, 2).
Unfortunately, despite increased opposition, warnings, accidents, almost accidents, explosions, AND obviously safer ways to offer internet coverage – the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continues to approve the launching of tens of thousands of satellites and similar vehicles to provide internet coverage – including unsafe 5G – from space (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13). This seems absolutely crazy.
From CBS News:
SpaceX launches 14th batch of Starlink internet satellites in fast-growing fleet
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket fired 60 more Starlink internet relay satellites into orbit Sunday from the Kennedy Space Center with another set awaiting launch Wednesday from the nearby Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
With Sunday’s flight, SpaceX has now launched 835 Starlinks in a rapidly-expanding global network that eventually will feature thousands of commercial broadband beacons delivering high-speed internet to any point on Earth. To reach that goal, the company plans to launch at least 120 new Starlinks every month.
The latest Starlink mission, SpaceX’s 14th, got underway at 8:26 a.m. EDT when the Falcon 9’s nine first stage engines ignited with a burst of flame, pushing the slender rocket away from pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center atop 1.7 million pounds of thrust.
The U.S. government recently issued a directive that requires manufacturers to better monitor and safeguard satellites and similar vehicles. Of course this won’t solve ALL the problems associated with these vehicles. Last I heard, rocket fuel is NOT eco-friendly and exploding satellites aren’t either.
