SpaceX is one of the most known companies in the world and they are known for their work on space affairs. It is believed that SpaceX has a tendency to change the future. Elon Musk has been an influencer for all of the people who tend to change the world with their work. SpaceX has recently launched 60 Starlink Satellites in the low orbit of the earth, the satellites are meant to provide internet at a low cost without any interruption of dishes. SpaceX is not done with the satellites yet as the company is planning to send 12,000 satellites up in the low-orbit. The initiative is being praised by a lot of people around the world but here comes the problem.

Though the view of the satellites is just amusing from down here the astrologers and the scientists have raised a big concern over the launch of the Starlink Satellites. The main concern of the astrologers and scientists is that they would not be able to perform analysis and researches as the satellites will cover most of the sky. If SpaceX launches all the 12,000 satellites it will be difficult for people to watch the stars and the night sky. Astrologers and scientists have to study the deep space and look for new objects and other galaxies residing out of our reach.

The organization representatives conveyed in a statement, “The the rapid increase in the number of satellite groups poses an emerging threat to the natural nighttime environment and our heritage of dark skies, which the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) has worked to protect since. We do not yet understand the impact of thousands of these visible satellites scattered across the night sky on nocturnal wildlife, human heritage, or our collective ability to study the cosmos.” Seems like the end of the night sky is near if any major step is no taken by the government or the space organizations.
