Strange lights in the Athens sky AGAIN

strange lights

The phenomenon of strange lights in the sky of Athens was mentioned in the past. However, we have received many messages in the last few days.

In the sky of Attica, the strange lights are most visible at night, with the mind and imagination making various associations. As much as we like these mysteries, they are not aliens, but it is Elon Musk...

So it is about Starlink, the SpaceX satellite system that is currently flying over Greece.

Starlink is a SpaceX project to create a network of satellites to provide internet connectivity worldwide. SpaceX, Musk's aerospace company, launched its first cluster of Starlink satellites in 2019. Since then, it has launched thousands of satellites, aiming to reach 42,000.

Starlink satellites operate in low earth orbit (LEO), providing high-speed internet connectivity. Starlink is also designed to provide connectivity in remote and hard-to-reach areas where broadband provision may be difficult or impossible.

However, Starlink has faced strong criticism. Some astronomers have raised concerns that the satellites could cause light pollution and disrupt astronomical research.

Additionally, the viability of the program depends on SpaceX's ability to continue funding and executing launches. In 2023, Starlink has achieved positive cash flow and is expected to be profitable. SpaceX plans to spin off Starlink as a separate company .
