“Please don’t take our stars away from us,” astronomers believe that Starlink satellites can prevent you from noticing a dangerous asteroid approaching Earth

Various astronomers have asked the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ban or pause Elon Musk’s project to launch 30,000 satellites for the second-generation Starlink network.

“Please don’t take away our stars. Starlink satellites need better engineering to make them dimmer and use fewer of them to provide service,” Samantha Lawler, an assistant professor of astronomy at the University of Regina, wrote last week in a statement to the FCC.

“Starlink satellites and others are already showing up regularly in wide-angle astronomical images and the growth is clear,” said Andy Lawrence, professor of astronomy at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. According to him, as the launch of vehicles into orbit continues, the situation will worsen.

The Astronomical Society of Edinburgh, of which Lawrence is honorary president, also filed a motion urging the FCC to put SpaceX’s plan on hold until a full investigation into the potential impact of satellites on the planet can be made.

“While broadband for all is a worthy goal, there are other ways to achieve it without destroying an important natural resource,” the 179-member group said in a statement. “In the coming years, we will regret what we are doing today if we don’t stop and think again.”

Carrie Nugent, professor of planetary science at Olin College, said most scientists are concerned that Starlink satellites are disrupting observations of near-Earth asteroids: “I am concerned that these satellite launches will interfere with the vital task of discovering near-Earth asteroids, which means that we will not have the warning needed to deflect an asteroid approaching Earth.”

SpaceX, which is responsible for launching Starlink satellites, has not reacted in any way to the astronomers’ dissatisfaction at the time of writing.
