@EliaLocardi @Sheardphoto @SpaceX The starlink satellites are only visible during twilight and should be virtually invisible shortly after. Not saying that it shouldn’t be considered but I don’t think it will be as big of a problem as some may think. Spacex has also been working on making them less reflective.

@newsfromorbit @SpaceX @elonmusk Concerning optical signature, there is much difference between the pretty large Starlinks and small cubesats, which are optically pretty insignificant. Of the 133 non Starlink satellites 120 are Cubesats. Therefore for astronomers this launch is not so much a problem.

@G81305489 @SpaceX The ride share sats cease being their problem as soon as they're launched from their platform. If you're talking about Starlink then it's not much to worry about as they're in a much lower and faster orbit that will decay in a couple years if one fails.

@Road_2_Mars @Erdayastronaut @SpaceX The real answer is that all of these are in low enough orbit that gravity will deorbit them quick anyway. Starlink satellites have propulsion and still only manage 5 yrs. But yes space junk will become a problem, will reach 100k satelites, can cause chain reaction of collisions

Unlike Starlink and similar tech, Loon didn't require users to purchase any additional hardware. That, coupled with Loon's B2B2C business model, should've helped keep costs down. Though not cost-effective enough, as we've learnt. See also: https://t.co/aqEekxXPdr
