    Its not a case of public approval, its a case of certain rules and regs being in place, its the same with modern slavery where people will start auditing their supply chain so they can't feign ignorance, but at least are seen to be doing something about it while still reaping rewards for the added profit that not being compliant brings...

    But hey, that's a bit off topic

    Well, from my (probably predictable) viewpoint, Amazon have way too much market power already, and several thousand satellites only multiply that. About the only way this would be worse (and not by much) is if Google did it.

    Not that the FCC (or anybody else) gives a flying ... fig ... what I think but we're it my decision to make, my concern would be if I could stop laughing uncontrollably at the notion long enough to gasp "No, just ... no, alright".
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".

    Someone somewhere will no doubt get a brown envelope and the permission will be in the post...

    Of course, we can talk about a lot. But people take it and do it. And we will depend on what they do.
    And they hope that this will somehow simplify our life.
    Launching satellites is good. The main thing is to find a way to get rid of debris in orbit soon, otherwise, we may not even see the Sun
