    actually, one more. I also have serious concerns about the number of satellites and a ****ty person like musk caring or not caring about collisions and interferences.
    I agree with you- some astronomers are pretty darned gracious. Musk is only doing this for power and money- not to actually help remote areas.

    They were supposed to be painting them dull black at some point. The white ones should decay into the atmosphere in a few years.

    Some of the astronomers are actually reasonably gracious that they are supplying internet to places that can't get them. Some.

    Oh, and the other night we saw the starlink trail fly over. Made me hate musk all over again.

    Nope. Made that decision several months ago with DeSantis and his war on LGBTQ, among other things.
    I really wish the NC$$ would pull all its events out of the state.

    They're expecting 100k+ here for the launch. We have a new guy relocating to join our group next week and he can't find a brand-name hotel within 60 miles.
