Night Sky light pollution and the ability to abruptly shut down internet services are real concerns. Moreover, why has there still not been a comprehensive environmental impact assessment? Where is the serious attempt to study the impacts under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)?
The Starlink network continues to be deployed while apparently unregulated night sky pollution continues to grow, as shown on new video. See: New York Times Instagram post:
Excerpt: "Since 2019, Musk has sent SpaceX rockets into space nearly every week that deliver dozens of sofa-size satellites into orbit. The satellites communicate with terminals on Earth, so they can beam high-speed internet to nearly every corner of the planet. Today, more than 4,500 Starlink satellites are in the skies, accounting for more than 50 percent of all active satellites.
Yet faced with little regulation and oversight, Musk’s erratic and personality-driven style has increasingly worried militaries and political leaders around the world, with the tech billionaire sometimes wielding his authority in unpredictable ways."
