Welcome to this month's look at #Starlink conjunction risk mitigation manoeuvres. Through 30 April 2023, I estimate that Starlink satellites have made a total of > 45,000 manoeuvres to mitigate the risk of colliding with other space objects [1/n] Graph showing the cumulativ...
A better relationship to consider is the one between the (cumulative) number of manoeuvres and the (cumulative) number of Starlink satellites launched. The growth is a non-linear function of the number of Starlink satellites [2/n] Graph showing the cumulativ...
Here, I looked at the manoeuvre estimates/reports in 6-monthly intervals, corresponding to the reporting periods used by SpaceX. Additionally, I added a prediction to the end of 2024 based on an exponential fit through 30 April 2023. [3/n] Graph showing the number of...

#RwOT at Yuhi we have been testing the @SpaceX #Starlink in Rwanda so that you don't have to venture into it blindly and not knowing what to expect, and here are a couple of observations we have made for the last couple of weeks of using it... 🧵 ImageImage
1. It took about 12 days from the day it was shipped to be delivered to us. This was a door-to-door delivery, so there was no hustle with customs or getting licenses from RURA.
2. From the packaging it seemed like the dish wasn't new, it looked like it had been used (had dust)
3. The setup is straightforward - you just need to plug in the power cable to the router, then the ethernet cable from the router to the dish (For power and data).
4. They don't use the usual connectors, so make sure not to damage them cause it'll hard finding a replacement/spare

🧵Loved working on this one - The widespread use of #Starlink by Ukrainian troops in defending against Russia is accelerating development of drone warfare, according to experts. Here are the benefits, risks & legal challenges of its militarization:…
2. While SpaceX likely never ruled out potential military use, it was not a case they emphasized. Today, there's no question that Starlink’s prominence in #Ukraine war has militaries all over the world considering & looking to make greater use of it.
3. Currently, Starlink antennas are too large/too heavy for small drones. However, there has been momentum from the defense industry to experiment. In Nov. #Canadian company RDARS, announced that it had successfully integrated Starlink equipment to its Eagle Nest ground station.

Here is my daily thread number 351 on the #Russia-#Ukraine war. One for each day of the war.
News and analysis of all events covering #Putin's illegal war.

Yesterday's thread was limited by Twitter.
I (and most others) were unable to post after 9.30pm UK time.
In case you were wondering about that tweet which couldn't be loaded, I found it quite amusing as Chancellor Scholz went straight past his flag and to the #Ukraine lectern before being corrected by Zelenskyy!
President @ZelenskyyUa is now arriving in #Brussels to meet EU officials as he continues his mission to get fighter aircraft for #Ukraine.

We've had almost a year now and it really angers me that no-one foresaw this. We never truly protected Ukraine as Russia controls the skies.

1/2 ⚠️⚠️⚠️
#SpaceX has taken steps to prevent 🇺🇦#Ukraine's military from using the company's #Starlink satellite internet service for controlling drones in the region during the country's #war with 🇷🇺#Russia - Gwynne Shotwell, SpaceX's president said...…
2/3 Ukraine has made effective use of unmanned aircraft for spotting enemy, targeting fires and dropping bombs.
"There are things that we can do to limit their ability to do that," she said, referring to Starlink's use with drones "There are things that we can do, and have done."
This is fucking ridiculous.
Seems like @elonmusk keeps looking for new ways assisting 🇷🇺#Russia in aggression.
Depriving the Internet for missiles and drones at the front deprives the Internet itself of meaning. Absolutely disgusting!

A thread on how:Starlink’s internet speed rattles competition

Starlink, a satellite internet provider that went live in Nigeria on Monday, has left many subscribers who can afford it excited over its super speed capability.

#starlink #internet #elonmusk #data #businessday
Starlink hardware and shipping comes at a cost of N276,000 ($600). The monthly subscription is pegged at N19,780 ($43) making it the most expensive internet service in the country.

#starlink #internet #elonmusk #data #businessday
But many Nigerians, especially entrepreneurs, and businesses may be driven more by the speed than the high cost. Starlink says Nigeria is the first African country where the service is going live.

J'ai acheté #Airliquide au quasi top et j'assume complètement.

Voila pourquoi 👇 Image
Vous avez tous entendu parlé des méga-trends. Ces tendances de fond qui ont un impact significatif sur l'économie, la société et l'environnement.

Les #investisseurs qui sont en mesure de les détecter peuvent tirer parti de ces tendances pour maximiser leur performance. Image
En ce moment tout le monde ne jure que par l' #IA , les cryptomonnaies et le métavers. Mais il y a quelque chose de beaucoup plus concret que tout le monde oublie :

L'industrie spatiale...

J'en avais parlé dans ce thread passé inaperçu mais je vais insister.

Thread 🧵 on #Starlink and internet access in 🇮🇷 Iran

1/ SpaceX has almost 100 Starlink 📡 terminals active in Iran now.… by @Writer_01001101
@Writer_01001101 2/ Unlike 🇺🇦 Ukraine, SpaceX does not have the cooperation of the Iranian government to expand Starlink services in the country. The Iranian government is actively trying limit its citizen’s access to the internet.
@Writer_01001101 3/ The government's internet censorship is fueled by and stems from the ideology of an ongoing hybrid war—a buzzword used by Iranian officials and commanders.

I read this post on fb and I thought it was super interesting so I’m sharing it here-

#Musk's uptick in insanity is because things are going poorly for #Russia. Musk is in deep with #Putin and the #oligarchs because they pump and dumped crypto making a whole bunch of dark
money people in the intelligence community and organized crime even more fabulously wealthy than they were before. New money laundering technology that's basically magic and a pyramid scheme the plebs will happily sign up for and dump their kids college fund into at the
same time? Awesome!

Russia has been waging this ongoing divide and conquer info warfare for at least a decade now since social media took off. Mostly just to sew division and destabilize anyone that might push back. Nothing new really, just a new avenue.

Here is a theory around the reasons for the #Starlink outage we saw a few hours ago. There is an entity in the Starlink system I know as “The Central Scheduler”. Sounds grandiose, I know, but it’s the “brain” of the system.
The scheduler is tasked with orchestrating all the resources in the space segment, such as gateway connections, spot beam allocations, ISL interconnections, and likely a few others. It re-calculates the constellation in 15-second blocks.
We also know SpaceX was planning to implement a FUP starting in December. The purpose of a FUP is to control an ISP’s top consumers’ consumption of the most expensive parts of the network path, so that 10% of costumers are eating 90% of resources.

🛰️AquaSwitch Report📡

Did you know that only 60% of the global population has access to the #internet?

And that as English-speaking we're actually sheltered from most of the content?

A TL;DR thread introducing our long-form article, with data from @OurWorldInData🧵

In the developed world, most people take internet access for granted.

But in some countries, internet users are still the minority 🤯

We tend to think that as native English speakers, we have access to everything.

But actually, most of the content is in other languages, with Chinese, Spanish and Hindi > English.

Just look at where most users are from, particularly recently 👇

Another beautiful and touching story is accomplished. #IronVillage in #Irpin officially closed today.

Danger: 🧵
Hoow it started. #Irpin had 7000 people whose houses were damaged or destroyed. City mayor @markushyn asked @Ukrzaliznytsia to help his people with temporary housing. And we are always happy to support such stories, even if that's not about our core business.
In 2 weeks we established 5 railway carriages for temporary housing in #Irpin. We paid pretty much attention to minor details. We wanted to give our residents a decent living space. Otherwise we wouldn’t give this village our trademark #iron label :)

Who remembers the Bryansk Oil Depot fires?

To its SE & only 55 kilometers from Ukraine is the Druzhba crude oil hub in Vysokoe that sends oil to Belarus (Mazyr) & north towards St Petersburg.

Electricity pumps oil, not diesel or gasoline.
