SpaceX Working with Astronomers to Fix Starlink

SpaceX will tweak the orientation of the satellites as they fly toward higher orbits. By making the solar panels edge-on relative to Earth, each orbiter will reflect much less sunlight back toward the ground after their initial deployment, when they are brightest. Additionally, they will deploy a shield — similar to a patio umbrella or a car sun visor — which will block the light from hitting the highly reflective antennas in the first place. --- Support this podcast: Support this podcast at — Advertising Inquiries: Privacy a Opt-Out:
