Why is every fucking billionaire suddenly obsessed with putting thousands of satellites into orbit? Do they just really love cluttering up the night sky, or what?

@blondtradgard Ugh. I hate that overgrown children with more money than morals get to use the actual night sky as their personal playground 😒


I always hope for a huge solar flare to fry all that stuff at once.

@nino @malerbabomba @blondtradgard Not necessarily. A lot of stuff on the ground is shielded these days. It won't be like the 1800s when telegraph poles caught on fire. That said, it would mess up a lot of stuff.

Better to hack the system and tell all the satellites to de-orbit making them all immediately burn up in the atmosphere. Which, in theory, is a thing you could actually do.
