I knew there were a lot of moons in the outer solar system, but this is more than I thought.

Genetic Engineering Will Change Everything Forever – CRISPR

A TED talk from 2016 explaining CRISPR better

This is wild but it's already happening. We already scan pregnant women for birth defects like Down's Syndrome and such but with gene editing, this could get wild pretty fast.

Space-based internet the focus of new OneWeb Florida satellite factory

Quote


OneWeb officially opened a high-tech factory near the Kennedy Space Center Monday designed to produce two internet-delivery spacecraft per day. It's part of an ambitious plan to launch nearly 2,000 broadband relay stations providing cable modem-class connectivity for schools, rural communities and other underserved populations around the world.

Quote

Six OneWeb satellites were launched atop a Soyuz rocket from French Guiana earlier this year to test throughput and latency in a pilot project connecting schools in Alaska, Ecuador, Honduras, Rwanda, Nepal and Kyrgyzstan. By the end of the year, another Soyuz is expected to carry the first load of 32 operational satellites to orbit.


Quote

The initial six OneWeb satellites are operating as expected, he said, adding "we're seeing 100 percent mission success."
"We're seeing 400 megabits per second (connectivity) with 30 millisecond latency," he said. That's equivalent to a cable modem in the U.S. So we're now able to show and demonstrate working satellites that can connect these places around the world."

I wonder how much a connection to the service would cost ? :breakfast:

SpaceX launched 60 of their satellites last month to provide free broadband internet.

Quote

The concern is more one of scale. Eventually, SpaceX hopes to put a constellation of nearly 12,000 internet satellites into orbit.

I did not realise that the satellites had a 5 year life. That means that they will have to keep on sending them up. I guess they may eventually make them with a longer life span.

I was thinking the danger may be if they crashed into some other space debris and broke up or altered orbit causing more debris, causing more debris etc etc. Then you could end up with swathes of junk that would be very hard to clean up.

Well it's not like they are just blindly being shot into space. I am pretty sure that they have a specific projectory laid out.

The SpaceX StarLink satellites have fuel and collision avoidance capabilities. The final thing they will do at the end of their lifespan is a re-entry burn up.
