Do YOU know the answer?

There is NO SINGLE International Body, say the IAU, in charge.

In the case of U.S. companies — or foreign companies planning to do business with the U.S. — the F.C.C. grants a license, but it appears that a few companies have skirted this and have had their satellites launched aboard.

What is the big deal?

Well, this 60-satellite SpaceX (Elon Musk) Starlink might look cool for a few days, BUT do you really want it marring your view of SPACE — at the Universe?

And this is only the start.

The entire SpaceX train, for providing global Internet access, will consist of over a 1,000 satellites!

And other companies, including Amazon, plan to join with thousands of their own.

Soon, and I mean in years, we will have THOUSANDS of small satellites in low Earth orbit. It will get in the way of us being able to enjoy the stars.

First we had Indians littering space. Then the Israelis crashed onto the moon. Now this.

This has to be controlled before we MESS UP SPACE.

Tesla Going Private — Why You Should Always Back Elon Musk.

I have learned from experience, good rather than bad, that it is always best to embrace Elon Musk rather than better against him. Yes, I talk as one lucky enough to have owned PayPal stock from day one. I had been invested in eBay for decades. So, when the PayPal spin-off came I automatically got PP shares. Since then I have sold most of my eBay and bought PayPal. That is how I realized that Elon Musk can make you money.

Two (maybe three) years ago I bought a FEW (and I truly mean) FEW shares of Tesla for $240. It was an expensive and risky stock. I held on to my few shares through thick-and-thin. I just wish I had bought more, but I never complain. If you make money, it is always a good thing. There is no point worrying about the money you didn’t make. Just enjoy and be pleased with what you did make.

Did The President Of ‘SpaceX’ Get The Job Because Of Her Befitting Name — ‘Shotwell’?

Never heard of her until earlier today. I went to have a quick look at CNBC and she was being interviewed. See below:


I like Elon Musk and SpaceX and as such stopped for a second to listen. She was impressive. I had not realized that SpaceX had a female President. Then I saw her name. Wow. ‘Shotwell’. What a great name for somebody heading a rocket company. You sure hope they shot well.

Given my fascination with names I had to look it up. Alas it is not a name that was given to archers. Shame that. They think it comes from a place name.

Never mind. Great name for the President of SpaceX. I hope she continues to shoot those rockets well
