From National Geographic today,...let's all go back to living in caves.



As Spaceweather.com reports, dozens of spacecraft in the
new Starlink constellation dove through the recent (and rare) outburst of the Alpha Monocerotids, creating bright trails that sometimes outshone the meteors. The incident has astronomers and stargazers worried, since parent company SpaceX plans to launch even more of these satellites in a bid to deliver global internet service. Our hunger for more, faster internet may also damage a more common activity: checking the weather forecast. As our Alejandra Borunda reports, next-generation 5G service threatens to drown out key data about water vapor in the atmosphere, potentially undercutting forecast accuracy.

As much as I love my smartphone, I’m hoping that the right folks are paying attention to these warning signs and will make sure that tomorrow’s technology won’t come at too high a price.
