Connecting the Unconnected: the Promise of Low Earth Orbit Satellites
Guest: Dan York
Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites such as Starlink have been credited with helping Ukraine in the Russo-Ukrainian conflict. Their promise extends beyond military reconnaissance to everything from in-flight Internet access to disaster recovery, but challenges remain. Even as companies race to put literally thousands of satellites into orbit, concerns about regulation, management of limited resources, and additional space junk are being raised. Please join us for a chat with Dan York, Director of Internet Technology at the Internet Society, to examine the promise, the implementation challenges, potential consequences of the growing LEO industry.
