the submission:

what overwhelms you?

“SpaceX’s mega-constellations of thousands of satellites will create an overwhelming amount of space junk, ruining the dark skies for astronomy, creating hazards for human spaceflight and contaminating space before developing countries get their space missions off the ground.”

why?

“Space is to be used for the benefit of earth and all humankind, not just those who get there first. By dominating entire orbits, US space companies are effectively colonising space – which goes against the spirit of international space treaties agreed decades ago.”

donna, 7.10.20.
