What important discoveries could satellites make in the near future, in your opinion?


Recommended Posts

Until the first satellites entered low-Earth orbit in the middle of the 20th century, we knew almost nothing about the dynamics of climate change. Now, thanks to images and other data received from satellites, humanity continues the history of the constantly changing planet Earth. In 1985, satellites discovered the ozone hole. These data help fight climate change.

What important discoveries could satellites make in the near future, in your opinion?

wireless electricity ? 😁

add: maybe out of the scope but i always imagine that electricity could transfer all over the earth using satellite, 😅

this will huge leap for us

Tesla already knew a way to transmit electricity wirelessly. At least there were such rumors. A satellite that transmits electricity through the air? It would be great.
But it seems to me that this is still far away.
But satellites may soon be beneficial in other ways. For example, provide people with a new way of accessing education and health services in places where it would be impossible otherwise.

In the previous post, I meant Nikola Tesla. He was a scientist.
As far as I know, Amazon may come out with similar technology.
China is busy developing 6g. They have already launched satellites to test this technology a few months ago.
Recently I read that scientists have already developed a plan to clean up the orbit from debris. It is now believed that 37 objects weighing more than 2 tons are in orbit.
And with all these new satellites, there will be even more small debris.

Satellite based internet is most important imho. Tesla's Starlink has already proven beneficial in many areas, but the question of personal data security remains. If China and Russia comes forward with similar tech, this issue will become louder.

To carry out the number of launches now required in this industry, many different devices will be needed. Of course, first of all, you will need a lot of small satellites with the necessary equipment. These satellites will need to be launched to different levels of the orbit. And to do it so that they do not collide with each other. For this, of course, there is an orbital insertion vehicle. There is the right tool for every task.
But once in orbit, tools are also needed to replace, maintain, and dispose of so much space debris. Where is it?
