Explain that Starlink provides satellite based internet service. That is, the Internet connection does not run through wires on the earth, but through satellites. With this, internet can be reached even to those parts of the world where it is not possible to reach it through wires. But some difficulties are also coming to the fore for the company.

Astronomers have raised objections to this project. According to the report of Transcontinental, space scientists say that so many satellites surround the earth that even at night, scientists have trouble doing their observations. This is reducing the accuracy and quality of scientific research. Apart from this, he has also expressed concern that long-term space missions cannot be successful due to these satellites. Because of the crowd of Starlink and other satellites, there is a danger of collision in space. Due to this, the garbage in space is increasing due to which spacecrafts can also come in danger.
