Talking about those Starlink satellites, I`d like to mention one interesting fact. Elon Musk said that Starlink satellites will have a self disposal option. Long story short, It means, that when the lifespan of a Starlink satellite goes to its` end, this satellite will be able to lead itself to the atmosphere of Earth and burn down there in order not to increase the number of space junk in the orbit of Earth which became crucial and can lead to a cascade effect, and can cause further collisions.

Starlink won't be launched 22,236 miles into orbit. They are launched into low earth orbit, shell 1 is 550km (340 miles), shell 2 is 1110km (690 miles) and shell 3 is 340km (210 miles).
