  1. I found one pretty clear program from the new space company. Here is how they see it: https://www.skyrora.com/post/skyrora-s-space-tug-gives-space-sustainability-dream-a-lift And here the device itself is described: https://www.skyrora.com/space-tug A clear deadline, regularly and successfully conducted tests indicate serious intentions. So far, I have not seen any more programs with such clear goals.
  2. As far as I understand, the problem with space debris is higher. What can be burned in the atmosphere will continue to burn. Scientists estimate that there are now at least 50 objects weighing more than 2 tons. And also a lot of debris that can damage the ISS or active satellites. (about 50000 fragments) The new satellites, of course, have their own deorbiting programs. In most cases. The problem is that the old fragments do not damage the new equipment.
  3. We all love innovation. We are monitoring the deployment of Starlink. We monitor the weather on the phone screen. We use satellite navigation and so on. All of this requires a lot of equipment in orbit. In this connection, scientists began to develop various methods of cleaning up space debris. From steam engines on satellites to space tugs. What is the most effective way to remove space debris from orbit?
  4. Who watched the big crash yesterday? I mean the SN test flight. Does it look like this rocket can deliver cargo to another planet? Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of the entire space industry. But the statements of some of the participants seem overly optimistic.

    5g doesn't work everywhere yet. And now serious work is underway on the next generation of communication. 6g is a satellite technology that can enable real-time holographic communication. At least the developers are talking about such advantages. China has already launched its first test satellite. What do you think about the prospects of this technology? And when will it be available? 2030? Or later?
  6. We will definitely not have an artificial sky in our lifetime. Despite the announced launches of a huge number of satellites. It is planned to launch 57,000 satellites by 2029. But most of these are microsatellites that will not be visible at all. Most likely, the constantly growing appetites of mankind will further increase this figure. But even this will not bring us closer to what you are talking about. New launch companies will be created to launch satellites. That's all.
