On Thursday night, the sky of Mendoza attracted the attention of locals and strangers strongly through a row of satellites that crossed the skies of our province.
Although everyone was amazed, and even some people were lucky enough to have caught this phenomenon with their cell phones, few of them knew the truth of the situation. In fact, some users on social networks shared the moment with some concern.
These are the controversial Starlink satellites, developed by SpaceX optimizer Elon Musk. It launched on Thursday despite many protests from large companies, causing companies like Amazon and OneWeb to be in lesser orbits than usual.
Musk’s controversial idea is to create a massive constellation of nearly 13,000 satellites around the world, a goal he has already launched thanks to FCC approval.
