What Elon Musk's 42,000 Satellites Could Do To Earth

Over the next few decades, Elon Musk is hoping to send 42,000 Starlink satellites to space. With these satellites, SpaceX hopes to bring high-speed satellite internet to every corner of the world. But experts worry it may come at a hefty cost, blocking astronomers' views and potentially space exploration for decades.

You forgetting that in altitudes of 200 to 400 km any debry will experience strong atmospheric drag and will fall down and burn in the atmosphere within a few years. Not decades or centuries.

Jeff Hodgson
Jeff Hodgson:
To the point 100000 satellites in casing the Earth what block is from ever getting into space I can't see that being a viable reason. There is about 250000 people living in my City and if everyone drives a car and you took those cars and spread them around the world I have a feeling you very hard for them to hit each other. Now there's something like 250,000 cars on a 2d Road Network where in space you have the option of 3D movement making it much harder to hit each other and vast amount of room for spacecraft and other satellites to manoeuvre. I know scientists and these are just random thoughts BTW

these satellites all have de orbiting functions when they reach their life span. and will be burned 100% on re-entry to earth. these guys just made a video without even looking ther official website starlink.com where they explain everything. such disappointment uhhh. i just lost all of my trust on this channel.

At ~500km, they de-orbit quickly - have to use the thrusters to keep them in orbit.

Stonehawk
Stonehawk:
Regarding Kessler Syndrome hysteria: These satellites orbit close enough to the Earth's atmosphere that drag will cause them to de-orbit on their own before they can hit other satellites and cause a cascade. These Starlink satellites literally can't stay up WITHOUT constant push from the ionic thrusters with which they are equipped. Finally, A COLLISION DOES NOT IMPART ENOUGH DELTA-V TO RAISE THE ORBIT OF THE DEBRIS, FULL STOP. IT CANNOT ESCALATE OUTSIDE THIS SHELL. It is physically impossible.

Astronomy Observations ?

It would be possible (likely) to observe
OVER 90% of the space sphere, from Earth, at any specific point in time.

******
>>.Space expands in 3 dimensions,,
of any point, producing a sphere.

Can observe over 90% of all space,
by direction, at any time !

Of any specific direction,
have no atmosphere distortions !

As a matter of fact, entire nations will dedicate entire agencies to it. China will. Iran will. Russia will.

First AND last name:
Arguments about Starlink obstructing earth based astronomy are extremely short sighted. The launch infrastructure and slashed launch costs that will be in place when Starlink is complete will be a gargantuan asset to science. Scientists will later enjoy their thousands of tons of space based equipment shortly, nothing to worry about.
Kessler syndrome is also irrelevant at the altitudes of the Starlink constellation.
And once again, a completed Starlink constellation enables undreamt of access to space, with the ability to launch infrastructure that could potentially reverse any Kessler syndrome conditions through orbital clean up. Monitoring for incoming asteroid impacts will also advance lightyears to what we have now.
Starlink should not be at all controversial based on the points brought up in this video. The James Webb space telescope will be nothing compared to what gets launched later.
Starlink will be an overwhelming net positive for humanity. Because NASA will never get the funding from congress to do it themselves.
