Recently, Chinese citizens lashed out against Elon Musk’s space programme, after China complained that its space station had to take evasive action in order to avoid collision with satellites launched by Musk’s Starlink programme.
Increasing risk of space collisions
About 30,000 satellites and other debris are believed to be orbiting the planet. So, scientists have urged governments to share data for reducing the risk of space collisions. SpaceX has deployed around 1,900 satellites for serving its Starlink broadband network and has planned more such launched.
Starlink is a satellite internet constellation. It is operated by SpaceX. The satellite provides Internet access, covering most of the Earth. The constellation has grown to around 1900 satellites as of 2021. It will eventually comprise of more of mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO). As of November 2021, beta service offering is available across 21 countries.
Work on Starlink constellation started in 2014 when SpaceX stealthily filed an ITU application through a Norway telecom regulator under the name STEAM. In January 2015, the communication satellite network SpaceX envisions was announced publicly, with bandwidth of carrying up to 50% of all backhaul communications traffic.
