A Short in which we discuss the implications of the Starlink program.
Starlink is a satellite internet constellation being constructed by SpaceX. This ambitious project (the brain child of Elon Musk) attemps to provide ubiquitous global satellite Internet access. This man-made constellation will consist of thousands of mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit, working in combination with ground transceivers.
But what ramifications will this initiative have for the world as a whole?
Everything from global surveillance, propaganda, light pollution and space junk to potentially a true world wide net of information and participation.
