This week, Elon Musk denied allegations that the billionaire’s satellite communications network would halt virtually the entire orbit.
He was forced to face an unusually tense situation this week over billionaire Elon Musk’s own satellite communications project, Starlink. The operation of the communication network, which currently consists of about 1,900 satellites, is being criticized in more and more directions, and China has now called for an emergency protocol to be implemented in two cases this year due to a Starlink satellite near the Chinese Space Station.
In response to an interview with the Financial Times, Musk explained that tens of billions of satellites would have comfortable space in orbit around the earth, so he doesn’t understand why the few thousand communications satellites he owns bother some.
The Starlink project has recently been criticized not only by China but also by the European Space Agency, whose head, Josef Aschbacher, said the proliferation of Starlink satellites would clearly reduce the scope for potential competitors in orbit.
A FEW THOUSANDS OF SATELLITES DON’T DIVIDE, DON’T MULTIPLE, NOT EVERYTHING, SO WE WOULD TALK ABOUT A FEW THOUSANDS OF CARS ON THE SURFACE
said Musk, who wants to expand Starlink’s fleet with thousands of new satellites in the coming years.
