Above article from Entrepreneurial magazine news. Found on Bing news page. Hopefully Musk can solve this problem but how. No control over Sun flares.

Wow, that's really something. I would never have thought of that, but it appears he did.

A little more than 1% of the total satellites affected and sounds like the kind of event Musk expected and planned for. Guess that is why it did not make more news when it actually happened.

The article doesn't mention that those satellites had just been launched and had not been raised to their final altitude and positions yet. None of the on station satellites have been lost to solar flares to date. In hindsight, SpaceX should have delayed the launch by a day to avoid the flares, but they chose to play the odds instead and lost.

^^^ This.

It's strange this suddenly became a hot news item. The destruction of the satellites was disclosed by SpaceX less than a month after the launch in early February '22..... and was reported in several media outlets like CNBC, Space.com and ArsTechnica as I recall.

If nothing else, demonstrates how lazy the mass media is.

I'm curious to see how well Starlink at Sea will perform for Royal Caribbean since they announced their entire fleet will be outfitted with Starlink by the first quarter of 2023, replacing their current satellite vendor. Got a couple of cruises booked with them in the coming months to the Caribbean. We shall see..........

OLD news and only applies to just launched birds. I read about it way back when it happened on space.com
