There’s a race use satellites to bring internet to the world. @greg_wyler wants this service to also be affordable. #EmTechMIT  http://bit.ly/2OaGCRF 

But before we talk about costs, we have to talk about logistics. #EmTechMIT  https://www.technologyreview.com/s/613239/why-satellite-mega-constellations-are-a-massive-threat-to-safety-in-space/?utm_medium=tr_social&utm_campaign=site_visitor.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1568924282 

And more logistics. #EmTechMIT  https://www.technologyreview.com/s/613751/spectrum-wars-satellite-communication/?utm_medium=tr_social&utm_campaign=site_visitor.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1568924331 

This is the near-miss @greg_wyler is referring to at #EmTechMIT.  https://www.technologyreview.com/f/614250/one-of-spacexs-starlink-satellites-almost-collided-with-a-weather-forecasting-satellite/?utm_medium=tr_social&utm_campaign=site_visitor.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1568924431 

And here's our analysis of the underlying issue. #EmTechMIT

We can't keep relying on the US Air Force to be the world’s space traffic cop.  https://www.technologyreview.com/s/614275/satellite-crashes-will-plague-us-unless-we-manage-space-traffic-better/?utm_medium=tr_social&utm_campaign=site_visitor.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1568924508 

"In the public's eye, the number of satellites make the company. It might not be the best architecture, but🤷‍♂️" - @greg_wyler #EmTechMIT

.@greg_wyler just compared satellite propulsion to a hippopotamus on ice skates. ⛸️ #EmTechMIT

Continuing this discussion is Chirag Parikh, the director of @NGA_GEOINT. #EmTechMIT

An attendee asked it. Do you think a Space Force is necessary?

Here's a parting satellite read for you. 👁️#EmTechMIT  https://www.technologyreview.com/s/613748/satellites-threaten-privacy/?utm_medium=tr_social&utm_campaign=site_visitor.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1568927512
