started this petition to
FCC and you, the general international public opinion
Space-X's Starlink program will change the night sky forever. And worldwide.

The way we perceive the galaxy is in danger: the sky will be planted with thousands(!) of satellites. These will circulate the earth in a visible and continuously moving mathematical grid of dots. Thus the only place left whithout human interference will suffer from these twirling lines in the sky.
The whole plan, now being executed, is from one company: Elon Musk's Space-X.
Apparently Amazon and Facebook will have their carrousells in the sky soon following.
Here is  a real time view of only the first series of satellites:

Imagine the night sky full of these moving objects!


Their obvious goal:
World dominance in internet traffic.
Wealth for some.
But seriously who needs internet from space?
It may be a beautiful idea. But this is way out of bounds!

FCC never sought reference, nor did they consult the people effected.
- This program should be halted. simply because it has too many ramifications
- New international and binding rules must be established. FCC  cannot be on its onwn in these matters


So if you agree with this, please sign this petition
