    Now that I know that Starlink is in low earth orbit (as opposed to geosynchronous), it makes sense to me why they need so many satellites. LEO satellites orbit the earth in about 1 hr. Therefore, the ground station has to keep finding the next satellite to get its data link. That’s impressive.

    Alas my hesitation until this moment resulted in my forgetting to do so. But as it happens today the fellow has a post up I thought sure (may?) you’d get a kick out of:

    Not all his stuff is Space related but there is a bunch regardless. I pray I’m not, to your judgement, taking too much for granted.
