The military value of 10,000’s of satellites in layered orbits beggars the imagination.
The American’s are putting a minefield in space.
Starlink can also be adapted to other military roles once numerical dominance is achieved.
A space internet project hiding a secret military program to take over the world. It doesn’t get any better than this.
