    China views Starlink as a threat, not just because it provides unfiltered internet access to anyone, anywhere in the world, but also because it already constitutes one third of all satellites in orbit, with that percentage growing fast.

    And maneuverable satellites are also anti-satellite weapons.  If it comes to a space war, orbital speeds are high enough that any collision is likely fatal, so the small size of the Starlink satellites in no way hampers their effectiveness.


  • Also it seems Starlink is now generally available in the southern half of Australia, which includes both my current home and my new one.  Might take them up on that.
