Despite Increasing Risks and Opposition, SpaceX Launched 60 More Satellites – Enough to Offer Broadband

SpaceX satellite and rocket explosions can and have happened. Last month, the company delayed a satellite fleet launch due to rocket “recovery issue” without explaining what that meant. Regardless, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continues to approve tens of thousands of satellites and similar vehicles from SpaceX and other companies to provide internet coverage – including unsafe 5G – from space (see 123456789, 10, 111213) DESPITE increasing warnings, opposition, accidents and almost accidents.


The White House recently issued a directive that requires manufacturers to better monitor and safeguard satellites and similar vehicles. Will it make much difference? Who knows! What we do know is that SpaceX has launched 60 additional satellites even though internet coverage CAN be provided in ways that are less dangerous – like hardwired connections – and Americans HAVE ALREADY PAID to have it installed more safely anyway (see 12).

From ArsTechnica:

SpaceX has launched enough satellites for Starlink’s upcoming public beta

“Fairly wide public beta” to come after latest satellites reach target position.

SpaceX’s Starlink broadband has been available in a limited beta for the past few months, and SpaceX has now launched enough satellites for a public beta that will be available to more customers. However, the newly launched satellites aren’t in position yet, and SpaceX hasn’t revealed an exact availability date.

After yesterday’s launch of 60 Starlink satellites, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk wrote on Twitter that “[o]nce these satellites reach their target position, we will be able to roll out a fairly wide public beta in northern US & hopefully southern Canada. Other countries to follow as soon as we receive regulatory approval.”

Musk did not say when the satellites will reach their target position. SpaceX has over 700 satellites in orbit after yesterday’s launch.

The FCC is supposed to protect the public from the telecom industry. Their failure to do so pre-dates the Trump administration. Lawsuits have been filed against the agency for NOT protecting Americans from unsafe levels of radiation as well as 5G deployment on the ground (see 123456) and in space.

Last year, the World Health Organization predicted that high levels of Electromagnetic Radiation exposure (aka “Electrosmog”) could lead to health issues in a significant percentage of the population. A few months ago people worldwide reported experiencing health issues after new satellites were launched. Of course, their health issues may not be from these additional satellites. Since 2018, there have also been reports of people and animals have been experiencing symptoms and illnesses after 5G was installed (see 1234). Then again, other installed sources of wireless – not just 5G – are emitting harmful radiation as well.

Some people, animals, and plants will obviously tolerate exposure to Electrosmog better than others. The same can be said of all toxins. This still doesn’t make any of this okay. It’s also happening on Trump’s watch. Tick tock.
