SpaceX's Starlink Stink: SPACE JUNK and ruining the night sky for astronomers, all for global internet?
[link to www.forbes.com (secure)]
Starlink is designed to eventually consist of 12,000 satellites, orbiting at altitudes of about 550 kilometers and 1,200 kilometers. SpaceX is one of nine companies known to be working on global space internet, and already concerns have been raised about space junk. Now astronomers too are worried about what the future may hold.

“The potential tragedy of a mega-constellation like Starlink is that for the rest of humanity it changes how the night sky looks,” says Ronald Drimmel from the Turin Astrophysical Observatory in Italy. “Starlink, and other mega constellations, would ruin the sky for everyone on the planet.”

It seems like it is for something else. I say that with no proof but 20,000 or whatever sats circling the globe just so some third world farmer can look at goat porno? I fear it is MUCH more sinister than that.

Jokes aside, I wonder why all the rush to put 5G everywhere. Perhaps it's related to AI ==> total control.

If these satellites are deorbited do they disintegrate in the atmosphere or do they reach all the way to the stratosphere? Imagine if the latter is case, it's a disaster waiting to happen for airplanes.

They're small enough that they will mostly disintegrate.

Sounds like a win-win. They don't even have to pay the landfill fees when their junk breaks.

Which it will about 6 months after they put it up there.

"Model 1.0.6.7.1 is 2 megabits too slow but we will fix that by sending up Model 1.0.7.3 n a 1/2." Ad nausium for the next 200 years.

Can you say 'SPACE TRASH'.

And every one will have a spy camera on it for 24/7/365 coverage of your butt hole. Ok so I'm a party pooper, point out that reality sucks and will only suck more in the future thanx to Mr. Musk and his ilk.
