A huge satellite can eclipse all the stars and planets in the night sky

A large satellite that SpaceX launched into space could become brighter than any other object in the night sky, except the Moon. According to the New Scientist, the scientific community fears what will affect astronomy.

The ASST SpaceMobile BlueWalker 3 telecommunications satellite and 34 Starlink satellites launched the Falcon 9 SpaceX rocket on September 10, which is designed to test cellular communications technology, including the 4G or 5G Internet, directly from satellite to mobile phones, which will provide users with mobile coverage even in the most remote regions.

BlueWalker 3 is a test machine that will provide satellite communications to the owners of conventional smartphones.

It was the first mission of SpaceX with five engines to deploy payloads in orbit, as well as the most heavy payload of the company in history. "One of our most complex missions," described the launch by the CEO of SpaceX, Ilon Mask, on a social media flight.

It would take weeks before ASST SpaceMobile would allow BlueWalker 3 to deploy a spring antenna. He added that during that time the company would conduct several performance tests to make sure that the satellite was in order.
