Troubles That Researchers Are Experiencing Due To Starlink Satellite


SpaceX is the world’s largest space organization which set new examples for the upcoming generation. SpaceX owner Elon Musk has been a great entrepreneur and has proved himself at every stage. SpaceX recently launched Crew Dragon spacecraft to the ISS and it also returned back to the Earth after serving its mission. Another thing that SpaceX recently did was the lunch of the satellites into the low orbit of the Earth. 60 Satellites were launched out of 12,000 and those satellites are very bright as they are causing difficulty for the scientists to study the night sky. When Falcon 9 took the first stock of the satellites. The star explorers found the effect of the satellites and now the matter has reached up to the government regarding the new rules and regulations form the International Astronomical Union. IAU conveyed in a statement on Monday, “We do not yet understand the impact of thousands of these visible satellites scattered across the night sky and despite their good intentions, these satellite constellations may threaten both.” IAU also shared the images of the Starlink Satellite which showed the light emitting from Starlink Satellite. The view was captured by Arizona’s Lowell Observatory. The trails obscure the view of the galaxy group NGC 5353/4. The organization also said, “Although this image serves as an illustration of the impact of reflections from satellite constellations, please note that the density of these satellites is significantly higher in the days after launch.” After the organization, SpaceX’s spokesperson said, “The observability of the Starlink satellites is dramatically reduced as they raise orbit to greater distance and orient themselves with the phased array antennas toward Earth and their solar arrays behind the body of the satellite.” The IAU stands for over 13,000 astronomers who were called for the satellite constellation as it was conveyed in a statement, “appropriate agencies to devise a regulatory framework to mitigate or eliminate the detrimental impacts on scientific exploration as soon as practical.”
