Opposition and warnings continue to increase about tens of thousands of satellites and similar vehicles being launched for blasting 5G and WiFi at Earth (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15), global surveillance and other purposes.
American 5G concerns and opposition include federal agencies and experts who warn 5G could threaten jobs, national security, public safety, and weather forecasting accuracy (see 1, 2). This includes NASA.

NASA Says This Company’s Giant 5G Satellites Could Cause “Catastrophic Collision”
For the first time, NASA is commenting on a private company’s application to launch a mega-constellation of satellites. And its message is clear: It could be disastrous.
AST & Science (AST) wants to launch 240 large satellites that would beam down 4G service and, if all goes to plan, eventually do the same with a 5G network, Ars Technica reports. Because the satellites will be so massive, NASA said in a statement that they would cause thousands of potential collisions every year — though AST says it’s committed to working with NASA to solve the issue.
Other mega-constellations like Starlink also pose collision risks, but it’s the massive size of these telecom satellites and AST’s inexperience in building anything that large that has NASA particularly concerned, Ars reports.
Given that lack of experience, NASA suggested up to 10 percent of the satellites might fail, creating an “unacceptably high” risk of a “catastrophic collision.”
In order to broadcast the 4G and eventually 5G signals, the satellites would come equipped with massive antennas up to 900 square meters in size. Given their planned proximity to other satellites, NASA says that’s a disaster waiting to happen.
“For the completed constellation of 243 satellites, one can expect 1,500 mitigation actions per year and perhaps 15,000 planning activities,” reads NASA’s statement. “This would equate to four maneuvers and 40 active planning activities on any given day.”

Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could cause health issues in a significant percentage of the population. Electrosmog includes 5G and other sources of harmful wireless WiFi radiation (see 1, 2).
Doctors and scientists have asked for 5G moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2). The majority of scientists worldwide oppose 5G until there are studies proving it’s safe. Nevertheless, the “Race for 5G” continues to be promoted and lauded by Big Telecom and its supporters which seem to include President Trump who reintroduced his proposal for a nationalized 5G program in August. The Department of Defense (DoD) wants to be in charge of this (see 1, 2) with Google assisting them even though the company is being sued for endangering humanity with the misuse of AI. What couldn’t go wrong?
