SpaxceX is that an 'X' rated version of SpaceX?

How many are active in the USA?

Dunno the exact amount but there are 3,200 Starlink Satellites in orbit

Ah so they turn them on to people who need them. I get that. Thanks I forgot the scale and scope of what they did.

Is SpaxceX his new offspring’s name?

More Starlinks than Starbucks

If GeoEngineering goes ahead, will this company or companies like it, be liable for damages when we get a winter storm like the one we've just had?


ClearlyCylindrical t1_j1vpddc wrote

you're going to need to explain that more. why would spacex have to pay for damages due to winter storms?

I just saying, people will start asking questions and pointing fingers. We know CO2 increases the risk of weather events; there have been court cases; so why not court cases against the use of weather modification technology? The biggest issue is another country, say one plunged into drought, might see weather modification as a weapon and decide to do a little of their own.


ClearlyCylindrical t1_j26vlsb wrote

What weather modification technology are you referring to?


Due-Mathematician261 t1_j2bm4dd wrote

The obvious one is simulating a volcanic eruption such as Mt. Pinatubo. There is also whiting of clouds with sea spray. There are probably others that I'm not aware off. There are big questions around the side effects of such technology. Main one, even if all goes well, we are left with the acidification of the oceans, and the resulting effects on all kinds of vulnerable larva as they try to form skeletal structures, be it eternal or external. The bottom line is some country will end up being a loser, as all that extra moister comes back down to earth. I've thought about it, and your right that companies will probably escape libel even if it can be proved, but that might not stop retaliation from a country at the end of it's rope.

Giving persecuted women access to information in the outside world would appear to be pretty damn important and If you disagree you'd better take it up with US govt. /Biden...he asked Elon to set this up.

Iran is a strict embargoed country for USA. The fact that spaceX can/is doing business in Iran is concerning...

The only reason would be that it would be going around law, but below someone said that they were given permission.

Look, I already said I was mistaken. I thought that SpaceX was going against the law until somebody showed me that SpaceX had full govt approval to bypass an embargoed country in order to help dissidents' and free-folk have access to un-fettered internet access.
