53,000 5G Satellites and Counting
The number of low Earth orbit 5G satellites keeps dramatically increasing, and by tens of thousands. When I first read about this they were talking about 12,000, now they talking about 53,000 and counting! 

These low earth orbit satellites will need to be replaced about every 15 years. The number of rocket launches necessary to get this number of satellites into low earth orbit will cause serious damage to earths atmosphere.

Rocket fuel is not environmentally friendly!


In 2019, at least eight companies and governments are competing to send up fleets of from 150 to 42,000 satellites each.

SpaceX, based in the United States, has plans for 42,000 satellites, is already launching 60 at a time, twice a month, and is developing a larger rocket that can launch 120 at a time. As soon as 420 satellites are in orbit, it plans to turn them on. That could be as early as February 2020.

OneWeb, based in the United Kingdom, has plans for 5,260 satellites and intends to launch 30 at a time every three to four weeks beginning in January 2020. As soon as 300 satellites are in orbit, in late 2020, it plans to turn them on.

Telesat, based in Canada, has plans for 512 satellites, and intends to begin service in 2021.

Amazon has plans for 3,236 satellites and intends to begin service as soon as 578 are in orbit.

Lynk has plans for “several thousand” satellites and intends to begin service in 2023.

Facebook has plans for thousands of satellites but has not disclosed its plans to the public.

Roscosmos, the Russian Space Agency, has plans for 640 satellites, to be deployed between 2022 and 2026.

Aerospace Science and Industry Corp., a Chinese state-owned company, has plans for 156 satellites, to be in place by 2022.

In addition to these satellite plans, Loon, a subsidiary of Google, has a contract to provide Internet to remote areas of the Amazon rainforest in Peru from stratospheric balloons.

Astronomers Protest

SpaceX intends to launch another 60 satellites as soon as the weather is favorable, bringing the total number of "Starlink" satellites in low orbit around the Earth to 240. Originally scheduled for tomorrow, the launch has been postponed due to weather conditions.

An Appeal by Astronomers called "Safeguarding the Astronomical Sky" is circulating, spearheaded by Italian astronomer Stefano Gallozzi. The appeal will collect signatures for about one more week, and then will be sent to governments, institutions and agencies around the world, and to newspapers and other media.

Most of the satellites will be visible to the naked eye, especially in the time after sunset and before sunrise, when they will most strongly catch the glare of the sun. If tens of thousands of them are launched, say the astronomers, they will ruin the night sky for all of humanity. The satellites will not only “greatly outnumber the approximately 9,000 stars that are visible to the unaided human eye,” but will “reach the brightness of the stars in the Ursa Minor constellation,” and will be “exceeded in brightness only by 172 stars in the whole sky.”

Even if the satellites are coated with non-reflecting paint, say the astronomers, they will still eclipse stars, and their radio transmissions will cripple radio astronomy, “making the astrophysics community blind to these spectral windows” through which they are currently able to observe the universe.


The appeal can be signed by

   Professional Astrophysicists and Astronomers
   PHD students
   Collaborators and/or Associates at International Scientific Institutes.

If you are an astronomer or if you fit into one of those categories, please sign the Astronomers' Appeal and ask your colleagues to sign also. At this writing, the list of signatories contains 263 astronomers from 25 countries (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela).

An article about this threat to the night sky was published in the popular and widely-read science magazine, Scientific American, on January 16, 2020. It is titled, "The FCC’s Approval of SpaceX’s Starlink Mega Constellation May Have Been Unlawful." It quotes Ruskin Hartley, the Executive Director of the International Dark Sky Association. Such a large number of satellites, he says “has the potential to change our relationship, and our connection, with the universe.” And it quotes Ramon Ryan, a law student at Vanderbilt University. Ryan has written an article, to be published later this year in the Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment and Technology Law, in which he argues that the Federal Communications Commission’s approval of 12,000 satellites was illegal because no environmental review was carried out. If the FCC is sued in a court of law, he says, it will be likely to lose.

"The 100,000 planned 5G satellites, each with a designed lifespan of 5 to 10 years, must be constantly de-orbited and replaced."


The sheer number rocket launches that will be necessary to place and maintain this astronomical number of 5G satellites in near earth orbit, will in themselves cause enormous ecological damage.

August 11th 2020  update from Arthur Firstenberg from the, "Stop 5G on Earth & in Space Appeal".



The launch of 57 more satellites by SpaceX in the early morning of Friday, August 7, at 1:12 AM EDT, has brought the number of SpaceX’s “Starlink” satellites orbiting in the Earth’s ionosphere up to 595.

Although this was the first launch since June 13, SpaceX has not been idle during this time. It has built additional ground stations and has received permission from the Federal Communications Commission to operate (so far) 40 ground stations, scattered throughout the United States. It has signed up customers to begin “beta testing” of the satellites that are already in orbit. Beta testing will occur initially, says SpaceX, with customers who live between 44 and 52 degrees latitude in the northern U.S. and southern Canada. SpaceX plans to begin the testing sometime in September.

As I reported in a previous newsletter, SpaceX’s launch of April 22, which brought the number of its satellites up to 420, was accompanied by reports of heart palpitations from far and wide, including from yours truly. I again felt strong heart palpitations that began early in the morning on August 7. Actually I began to experience a feeling of oppression Thursday night about two hours before the launch time. Please contact me if you have been having heart palpitations since Friday’s launch.


OneWeb, which is based in the UK, and which had declared bankruptcy in March, has been bailed out to the tune of one billion dollars by the UK government and Indian telecommunications company Bharti Global. And on May 26, 2020, OneWeb applied to the FCC for permission to compete on an equal footing with SpaceX by launching 47,844 satellites into the ionosphere.

Although OneWeb’s offices are in the UK, none of its Directors live there. Its CEO, Adrián Steckel, is Mexican, and the rest of its Directors live in the U.S., Germany, Israel and Mexico. Its major stockholders are Qualcomm (Singapore), SoftBank Group (Japan), and 1110 Ventures (U.S.).


On July 29, 2020, the FCC granted Amazon’s application to launch 3,236 satellites into the ionosphere. Like the satellites of SpaceX and OneWeb, Amazon’s satellites will operate at millimeter wave frequencies and use phased array technology to cover the Earth with focused beams of radiation enabling customers to access the Internet from anywhere on Earth, on land or ocean.

The satellites of SpaceX, OneWeb and Amazon alone, if they are all launched, will total, together, about 92,000 satellites. If you add in Iridium and Globalstar, which are already operating small constellations, and the plans of Facebook, Link, Canadian companies Kepler and Telesat, the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation, Russia’s Roscosmos, and other competitors, there could soon be 100,000 satellites orbiting in the ionosphere.

“But will you wake for pity’s sake”*

The out-of-control satellite industry is one of the stupidest things humankind has ever created. It treats the life-giving envelope of our atmosphere as if we don’t depend on it. It poses an immediate threat to life on Earth, in so many ways.

The 100,000 planned 5G satellites, each with a designed lifespan of 5 to 10 years, must be constantly de-orbited and replaced. This means that at least 10,000 satellites will have to be launched every year, forever into the future. If an average of 50 satellites can be launched on each rocket, that’s 200 rocket launches per year, just to maintain the satellites used for cell phones and Internet. And it means the de-orbiting of 10,000 worn out satellites per year, burning them up in the atmosphere and turning them into toxic dust and smoke. And that’s not counting the ever-increasing numbers of weather, research, tracking, monitoring, surveillance, military, and other kinds of satellites and missiles being launched in what will soon be a parade of rockets burning prodigious quantities of fossil fuels, punching holes in our atmosphere on a daily basis, and treating the source of all life as Earth’s largest garbage pit.

Martin Ross of the Aerospace Corporation and other researchers have been modeling the effects of daily rocket launches on ozone and global temperatures. Rocket exhaust, depending on the type of fuel used, may contain chlorine and/or oxides of nitrogen, hydrogen, and/or aluminum, all of which destroy ozone. SpaceX’s kerosene-fueled rockets deposit enormous amounts of black soot into the stratosphere, where it accumulates, absorbing solar radiation and warming the stratosphere. The warming of the stratosphere accelerates the chemical reactions that destroy ozone.

Most rockets are launched from the northern hemisphere. And the winter and spring of 2020 saw the largest and longest-lasting Arctic ozone hole in history. Ozone-watchers did not know what caused it, but they were not communicating with the scientists who are studying rocket exhaust. Our world is full of specialists, deaf and blind to other specialties, collectively asleep and marching toward oblivion.

Atmospheric physicists do not study astronomy. Astronomers do not study electricity. Electricians do not study biology. Medical doctors do not study acupuncture. Doctors of oriental medicine do not study atmospheric physics. But the universe is not fragmented, it is a whole, and our culture has forgotten what that is, to its peril and to the peril of everything alive.

The ionosphere is a source of high voltage that controls the electric circuitry of the biosphere and everything in it, including the fine-tuned circuitry of every human, every animal, every tree, and every fish. If we do not immediately stop the destruction of our fragile blanket of electrified air, upon which we depend for growth, healing, and life itself, climate change and ozone destruction may not matter. Beta testing begins in September.


On Thursday, August 13, 2020, from 7 to 9 PM EDT (2300 to 0100 UTC), Americans for Responsible Technology will host a meeting about the 5G satellites on Zoom that will be simulcast on Facebook. In the first hour, four presenters will speak for 15 minutes each:

Ben Levi, technology consultant, will summarize the current satellite situation. Where are we now, and what is forecast over the next few years?

Joe Sandri has a law degree and has training and experience in radiofrequency engineering. He will describe how the satellites work. How will a typical 5G transmission use the satellites? What kinds of earth stations will be required?

Arthur Firstenberg will talk about the impact of the satellites on people and the environment. How will the electrical environment of the earth be altered by constant transmission of 5G signals?

Julian Gresser, attorney, will address what is being done legally to stop this. What right does the FCC or any other agency have to authorize the use of space for private commercial interests? What are the legal and ethical principles involved?

The second hour of the meeting will consist of a discussion among the presenters, followed by questions from the online audience, which will include members of the press.

Attend by Zoom (limited space). Participants must register in advance: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register...Hqle3LNwrH

I doubt that we can stop 5G from pressing forward, but I expect some help might come from nature.  The sun would only need to send another Carrington event our way to melt those satellites out of orbit.  

Quote:However, if this sunspot which can be up to 50,000 kilometres in diameter may release a huge amount of energy which in turn will lead to solar flares. These eruptions may lead to solar flares and storms. This phenomenon is called Coronal Mass Ejections (CME). These flares can have a major effect on affect radio communications, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) connectivity, power grids, and satellites.

Thanks for the updates vital 1. The heart palpitations are ominous. I have experienced some recently but have not noted dates. Within the past week or two.

'Twinkle twinkle little star'
Life sealed in a jar
Rockets blast with a deadly sprinkle
Humans in their blind eye wrinkle
Bailouts for all, whose in your pocket
Like sheep lead astray, narcissists
mock it
Come one come all we have new tryouts
Hereabouts, thereabouts, we have lost our whereabouts 
Ready or not here I come, for I am the rule of thumb 
You the pond scum, potential earnings bum, you are my zero sum
Lips are moving, lies are proven, so get steady
The screws are turning, the masses churning, the toll will be heavy
'Twinkle twinkle little star'
Extinction seems to be on par
So, I saw this little tidbit while scanning the new world of covid.  Is there some connection to Covid and the 5G roll out?  She explains that 60 GHz breaks the ionic bond of a molecule of oxygen (O2) reducing its bio-availability.  Since the symptoms can be somewhat the same as covid she hypothesizes that 5G might cause covid.  While covid appeared in countries and cities that installed 5G it also occurred in places where 5G hadn't rolled out.  Nonetheless, 5G illness could be blamed on Covid.
