Why Starlink and other satellite constellations need lasers

One of the next big upgrades in telecom will involve satellites firing lasers at each other—to beam data, not blow stuff up.

With Just 8 Words, Elon Musk Exposed a Brutal Truth About Jeff Bezos’ Space Ambitions

At the Code Conference last week, Elon Musk responded to a lawsuit filed by fellow billionaire Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin, telling Kara Swisher that “you cannot sue your way to the moon.” It’s the latest in an escalating battle between the world’s two richest men over their efforts to send people into space.  As you might expect, Bezos had a few words in response to Musk’s comment.

Global Positioning | Hackaday

To find your position on the earth’s surface there are a variety of satellite-based navigation systems in orbit above us, and many receiver chipsets found in mobile phones and the like can use more than one of them. Should you not wish to be tied to a system produced by a national government though, there’s now an alternative. It comes not from an official source though, but as a side-effect of something else. Researchers at Ohio State University have used the Starlink satellite broadband constellation to derive positional fixing, achieving a claimed 8-metre accuracy. The press release is light on

How many man-made satellites surround Earth? Even your wildest guess will fall short

According to a surprising report issued by Space.com, companies around the world are set to send huge numbers of satellites into space to offer worldwide high internet connectivity in the next couple years. And this connectivity comes at the risk of the space’s cleanliness. It will taint cosmic studies and pollute the skies. A group of researchers has also analyzed the consequences of these spacecraft and studied potential mitigating techniques. They’ve projected that astronomy will end in a catastrophic situation. The mega-constellations that will launch into Earth orbit in the next few years include Starlink, OneWeb, Kuiper, and SatNet. Each

Congested, contested… under-regulated and unplanned

The rise of the mega-constellations has set a new precedent in orbital congestion, simply as a result of the increased number of satellites. But that is only part of the story: it’s also an issue of regulation and planning which, as Stuart Eves explains, includes the esoteric topic of frequency coordination. For the past decade or so, the US military has pointed out that the space environment is increasingly “Congested, Contested and Competitive”. Although it was always recognised that commercial space activities contributed to the “three Cs”, the implicit focus from a US military perspective has always been on the
