In advance of my monthly analysis of #Starlink conjunction data I wanted to share some additional analysis undertaken over the last few days. It's a work in progress but here's a thread looking a little deeper at the #SpaceX approach to #Starlink orbital space safety [1/n]
#SpaceX provided some relatively detailed information about its approach in a briefing to the #FCC (here:…) and in an update on the website (here:…) [2/n]
My focus has mostly been on understanding the implications relating to the choice of the probability threshold for collision avoidance manoeuvres. With the #SOCRATES #Starlink data now running across nearly 3 years we can gain some insights that may be useful [3/n]

Und wer böte sich als Zentral-Admin für die "staatsferne"-Twitter-Alternative unter ÖRR-Aufsicht mehr an als @janboehm, unterstützt von Chefberater in Halbzeit (neben dem ihn kaum ausfüllenden Ministeramt) Prof. Dr. @Karl_Lauterbach. Hach, welch ermunternde Zukunftsvision...🕵️
Wobei bei allem Sarkasmus, @polenz_r bzgl. der nicht mehr kommerziell optimierten Algorit(h)men (sic!) natürlich einen validen Punkt hat. Aber die Frage der Umsetzung auf Basis von ÖRR, nun ja, ...
Und mehr als relevant in diesem Zusammenhang sind diese Aspekte bzgl. #muskbuystwitter & seiner mehr als mutmaßlichen #Pentagon + #CIA-Verbindung:

#ElonMusk isn't evil, BUT
👇A thread 🧵

His #libertarian ideology can be cartoonishly evil, bcs its amoral. That makes him a threat to #liberty, #prosperity & 250 years of American #democracy

There are a few dots to connect, so stick with me...

1️⃣ #PeterThiel wants a #Monarchy
2️⃣ The #KochBrothers are creating an #Oligarchy
3️⃣ #Putin's Russia is the grand vision
4️⃣ #Libertarians are amoral
5️⃣ #Ideology is blindingly dangerous
First, check out this remarkable @Techcrunch article called "Geeks for Monarchy".

Long before the 2016 election brought us a #Trump/#Putin/#Theil/#AltRight mashup of craziness, @klintron laid out this #antidemocracy ideology waaaaaay back in 2013.

🟥 Lo hacemos con lo que parece un Su-34 a baja altura supuestamente en el #Donbass. Vídeo de #Vorposte.

🇷🇺🔥🇺🇦 #Rusia vs #Ucrania (día 42) – Las tropas rusas de #rosgvardia habrían encontrado este arsenal ucraniano en #Snigurovka, en la óblast de #Nikolayev, al NE de Jersón y en la ribera del río Inhulets.
🇷🇺🔥🇺🇦 #Rusia vs #Ucrania (día 42) – El canal ruso #RT (a ver si no nos bloquean esta vez) ha publicado este vídeo en el que se muestra de cerca el funcionamiento de los MLRSL "Grad", en este caso sobre la localidad de Heorhiivka, 20 km al OSO de #Donetsk.

Earlier this week Elon Musk set out his team's expectations for #Starlink satellites over the next 18 months. I thought I would use this month's #SOCRATES analysis to see what the Starlink team should expect in terms of conjunctions & manoeuvres over that period & beyond [1/n]
Before I start, I'd like to offer my thanks to @planet4589 for creating a page on his website with data that enabled me to move forwards with a critical part of the analysis. Thanks also go to @TSKelso for ongoing support and provision of SOCRATES data via @CelesTrak [2/n]
This month we open with the number of conjunctions within 5 km or less predicted for each week from December 2018 to the end of March 2022. Something extraordinary has happened because of #Starlink and the ASAT test in November: a 400% increase in less than 3 years [3/n]

#SpaceX launches 48 new #Starlink satellites into orbit!
Are they insured?

Elon Musk’s aerospace company SpaceX successfully deployed 48 new Starlink satellites into orbit this Wednesday. (1/5)
Starlink is a constellation of broadband satellites that SpaceX is assembling in low earth orbit to provide internet access to most of the world.

This mission to provide high-speed internet to remote locations has been widely commended, but it isn't free from controversy. (2/5)
As over 6000 #satellites orbit Earth, many astronomers have pointed out the increasing chances of collision with an aircraft or another satellite. If such a collision were to occur, the loss would be astronomical!

And this is where Satellite Insurance becomes useful. (3/5)

As much as I love passive income, what gets me most excited about the crypto space is the economic opportunities it provides to those who were previously excluded.

Here are some reasons why you should be proud to be a part of the crypto movement:

1/ First a bit of context. I’ve been fortunate to work in many places around the world.

I’ve seen first hand how access to finance, and financial inclusion deeply impacts people’s ability to put food on the table.
2/ Nobel prizes have even been given out to Muhammad Yunus, for addressing financial inclusion, and Amartya Sen for showing that access to economic facilities is fundamental to living standards.

Crypto has been able to address and accelerate all of this in a few different ways:

(1/8) #StarshipAddicts, I think we have a major update for you about one of the #Starship variants we have been expecting to see at #Starbase!

It has been speculated that this nose cone barrel section was to be used for the #CargoVariant.
(2/8) Thanks to @RGVaerialphotos, we now know what it looks like from above. In this image you can see in interior structure which is most likely used to open the "payload bay"
(3/8) If you watched the most recent episode from @RGVaerialphotos flyover review you will remember us mentioning that the size of this payload door makes a lot more sense for #HLS #LunarStarship than it does for #Cargo version.

Important and informative update from @SpaceX in response to widespread concerns about #SpaceSafety & #SpaceSustainability associated with #Starlink. Lots to unpack but worth investing time to do so (it's the Feb 22nd update entry btw)
There's a strong focus on the collision avoidance capabilities of the #Starlink satellites rather than on the services that inform those capabilities. Ryan Hiles and co-authors presented a hugely valuable insight on this aspect at @amoscon last year…
The impact of #Starlink on the work of @SpaceForceDoD is explained clearly, as are the steps taken to manage the screening burden that has emerged with growing numbers of #Starlink satellites. That burden is continuing to grow (exponentially by my estimates)

1. Volgens Russische media is een artilleriegranaat vanuit #Oekraïne op Russisch grondgebied neergekomen in de regio #Rostov op 1 kilometer van de grens en op 300 meter van een bewoond gebouw in het dorp Mityakinskaya.
2. De Volksrepublieken #Donetsk & #Luhansk gaan over tot algemene mobilisatie van alle strijdbare mannen.
Een Oekraïense soldaat is gesneuveld door artillerievuur van de pro-Russische milities.
3. Volgens de Donetsk Volksrepubliek gaat #Oekraïne de komende dagen volgens dit plan de #Donbass binnenvallen en zullen er etnische zuiveringen plaatsvinden. 31.000 burgers zouden volgens @sputnik_fr al geëvacueerd zijn uit #Lugansk en #Donetsk naar #Rusland. Image

On compare souvent la taille du miroir de @ESA_Webb avec celle de @NASAHubble, mais la taille ne fait pas tout. L'orbite de #JWST autour de L2 dont je vous ai déjà parlé fait une énorme différence. Je vous explique pourquoi dans ce #thread
#Hubble (HST) se trouve en orbite basse, à environ 540km d'altitude. @NASAHubble fait le tour de la Terre en 1h30. Pour comparaison, l'@Space_Station se trouve à environ 420km et les satellites #GPS et #Galileo sont à plus de 20 000km d'altitude.
Cette orbite basse a été très pratique pour y effectuer des missions de maintenance sur le télescope. 5 missions de service ont été effectués par les astronautes de @NASA entre 1993 et 2009. Plus aucune mission de service n'est programmée à l'avenir.

India’s richest billionaires are fast catching up while #ElonMusk struggles for satellite broadband licence

#MukeshAmbani #RelianceJio…

By @jainrounak
@jainrounak Elon Musk’s #Starlink has also been trying to enter the Indian market but was asked to refund the pre-orders that it had accepted as the company has not secured a license to operate in the second largest telecom market in the world.

@jainrounak In the meantime, India’s biggest billionaires like Mukesh Ambani and Sunil Mittal have found their respective partners to launch their own satellite broadband services.

1\ Serious question time: Remember the last time we had a cold war and there were HUGE #nuclearban rallies? Things like @Greenpeace got started. We are in a pandemic. Where are the anti-proliferation rallies for #bioweapons? Image
2\ For that matter where are the campaigning groups pushing back against #climate hostile #geoengineering practices like atmospheric seeding?…
3\ Where is the pushback against plans to seed Earth's orbit with thousands of vision and sensor blocking #SpaceX #Starlink satellites, which will eventually become #spacejunk?…

In recent news, Starlink has not been regularized by the PTA, and people have been restricted from pre-ordering the Starlink. However, it is suggested that they do so once they have been granted permission to operate in Pakistan.

#Starlink #ElonMusk #PTA #Broadband #Pakistan 🇵🇰
This is in accordance with press release recently issued by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority which informs general public that satellite broadband provider Starlink has neither applied for nor obtained any license from PTA to operate & provide internet service in Pakistan
Therefore, general public is advised in their own interest that they must refrain for engaging in any pre-booking orders being placed on Starlink or any of its associated websites.

The directions came in the wake of reports that Starlink, through its website

Starlink: 2000 satellites launched (and >10% already decommissioned). Why isn't #SpaceX accelerating the deployment? What is preventing it? Why is it not happening? I would have expected a higher frequency Starlink launch rate at this point (40-50 launches/year at least). 1/
I know that this is not a popular opinion, but I can only see two (non mutually exclusive) reasons for this: 1) Falcon9 is too expensive; 2) Falcon9 turnaround time is too long. Tu put it short: it is not as effective as required. 2/
In a recent talk with Lex Fridman @elonmusk said: "the upper stage is at least 10M$" & "the booster is not as rapidly and completely reusable as we'd like" ... "the minimum marginal cost not counting overhead per flight is on the order of 15 to 20M$" 3/

In response to the @FCC's request from 23-DEC-21 () @SpaceX yesterday submitted interesting clarifications (📄…) with new details about #Starlink Gen2 revealing it was actually filed with the @itu via Germany (@bnetza). A thread:
SpaceX laments the FCC's long lead times (original Gen2 filing pending for 1.5y, amendment for 5m) by which it justifies its *much earlier* ITU filing for Gen2 through Germany (p.8) & competitive risks from "asymmetric disclosures" b/c of transparent filing process in the US
Also worth noting: SpaceX claim it "was one of the last remaining NGSO operators to have been licensed
exclusively through the United States" when in fact its original Gen1 ITU filing was submitted through Norway (C/S: STEAM-1 & STEAM-2) and Gen2 apparently through Germany

Pointless bureaucratic torture “endless meetings where you know nothing would get done” forces @SpaceXStarlink India chief to quit, in huge setback to the image of India as a business friendly destination. @SpaceX @NITIAayog #StarLink…
If there is to be any movement on Starlink from Indian bureaucracy, @SpaceX has to take 5% stake in Mukesh Ambani or Adani companies in true Mark Zuckerberg style.
Starlink is a threat to Reliance investment in Telecom.

Just had coffee w a sharp college student who is trying to plan for his future.

He cold DM’d me, explained his thought process. Aerospace eng minor. PoliSci major.

“What are the coolest aerospace startups today?” He asked.

So, here’s a quick thread - for all to see:


Gotta start with the MOAS (mother of all startups), @elonmusk’s @SpaceX.

Elon will go down in history as one of the greatest human beings ever. Don’t take my word for it, read this:…

2/ launch
- @relativityspace.

Say it with me, “3D printed rockets.”

It’s an ambitious project, but someone has to build the future. And if they get it right, it’ll be a game changer.

@MorganStanley recently issued a report that puts the value of #SpaceX at $100B. Let me start by saying that @MorganStanley disclaims that it may have "conflicts of interests" affecting its "objectivity". It is my opinion that it also affects @MorganStanley's common sense.
The @MorganStanley valuation of SpaceX is based on a series of very peculiar assumptions that are incredibly optimistic (tu put it nicely) from the perspectives of technology evolution, industrial costs and market uptake. Let's review them.
80% of #SpaceX value, is based on #starlink. @MorganStanley assumes that the Starlink system performance will improve by at least two orders of magnitude in 20 years, enabling it to attract 300M subscribers at 20$/month in 2040, and generate billions of free cash after 2030.
