What You Should Know About 5G Satellites—How Musk’s Sci-Fi Dreams Are Becoming Our Living Nightmare

Companies and governments have plans to launch approximately 50,000 satellites to provide 5G and Wi-Fi services everywhere on Earth. Elon Musk’s SpaceX is leading these efforts with its planned deployment of 42,000 Starlink satellites and its goal of establishing a global network. To provide service, SpaceX states that it requires an infrastructure of one million on-the-ground antennas to connect its satellites with the ground user. In March 2020, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved SpaceX’s ground antenna application. The almost 400 satellites launched to date are approaching the threshold number at which SpaceX says it can begin supplying 5G coverage from space. This year, SpaceX plans to accelerate its satellite launches to an average of 120 per month (60 every two weeks). These low-orbit satellites not only already contaminate our night skies and interfere with astronomy but also promise to flood Earth with powerful, focused electromagnetic beams that emit radiofrequency (RF) and microwave radiation proven to adversely affect the health of humans, animals and plants. The satellites also may have an impact on Earth’s natural electromagnetic field—essential to all life on our planet—yet no national or international agency has taken action to evaluate, reduce, prevent or publicize the environmental impact of the satellites’ emissions. Meanwhile, significant effects are already occurring. Read more....
