SpaceX Starlink satellites: Why are astronomers concerned by Elon Musk's Starlink project?


Jeffrey C Hall, chair of the American Astronomical Society (AAS), also said: “The natural night sky is a resource not just for astronomers but for all who look upward to understand and enjoy the splendour of the universe.”

The AAS also said in a statement: “The AAS recognizes that outer space is an increasingly available resource with many possible uses.

“However, the potential for multiple large satellite constellations to adversely affect both each other and the study of the cosmos is becoming increasingly apparent, both in low Earth orbit and beyond.”

Astronomers will be pleased to know SpaceX chief has addressed the concerns.
