Many people have requested that the Appeal should still remain open for signatures. Therefore, both the individual signature form and the organization signature form will remain on the Appeal’s website even after the initial delivery of the Appeal to the world’s governments.
Within the next few days, I will be directly contacting everyone who has volunteered to deliver the Appeal in person to their governments.
SpaceX Has Applied for 30,000 More Satellites
The emergency in the sky just became even more terrifying: on October 7, 2019, the International Telecommunication Union posted new applications by SpaceX for 30,000 more satellites, in addition to the 12,000 that have already been approved, for a planned total of 42,000 5G satellites in low and very low orbit in the Earth’s ionosphere.
SpaceX has also announced a speeded up schedule of launches: it plans to launch as many as 240 more satellites by the end of 2019 and as many as 1,440 satellites during 2020, i.e. 120 satellites per month. Beginning in 2021 Space X expects to be able to launch 400 satellites at a time, or 4,800 satellites per year, on its Super Heavy rocket, now under development. SpaceX now states that it intends to begin providing 5G from space to most of the world’s population some time in the second half of 2020.
The initial satellites will be distributed in 72 orbital planes, inclined at 53 degrees to the equator. This means that when service begins in 2020 from about 1,000 satellites, their signals (and radiation) will reach all populated places on Earth except Alaska, northern Canada, far northern Europe, most of Russia, and Tierra del Fuego.
But the greatest damage the satellites will do, which could end life on Earth when they go into service next year, comes from their location in the most vulnerable part of the Earth’s environment: the ionosphere. The ionosphere is a layer of atmosphere that begins at an altitude of about 50 miles above our heads. It is charged to an average of 300,000 volts at all times and it provides the power for the global electrical circuit. The global electrical circuit provides the energy for all living things: it is why we are alive,
