wimvb Posted February 23 Share Posted February 23 According to an article I just received in my news feed the US government agency FCC has approved Amazon's request to put 3000 satellites into a (lower) earth orbit constellation to provide its customers with internet access. I find this disturbing. According to the article in space.com, "The company has now satisfied conditions including a plan to address issues of collision risk, post-mission disposal reliability, completion of satellite design, and orbital separation." Nothing about how Amazon will prevent their fleet from interfering with astronomical observations. https://www.space.com/fcc-approves-amazon-constellation-kuiper Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
