Space Invaders: Russell Brand on How Tech Billionaires and Their Business Ventures in Space Could Hurt All of Us
For years already, credible individuals, agencies, and organizations have warned against launching more vehicles into space. For one thing, there’s too much space junk out there already and it’s creating dangerous and potentially catastrophic situations.
Launching more vehicles is ill-advised for that reason and various others that are equally scary (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) including explosions (see 1, 2, 3). Recently, a 5G satellite moratorium was issued in South Africa due to interference issues as well.
Unfortunately, none of this has stopped Elon Musk or other tech billionaires from launching satellites or pursuing other business ventures in space. Of course, they are getting funding for some of this from the U.S. to provide high-speed internet.
The majority of scientists worldwide oppose 5G deployment. Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums. Americans opposed to 5G may sign this letter asking President Biden and Vice President Harris to stop deployment.
