SpaceX has darkened its Starlink internet satellites with visors to avoid disrupting the night sky - but they can still ruin astronomers' data

The first batch of 60 high-speed Starlink internet satellites, each weighing about 500 pounds, flat-packed into a stack prior to their launch on May 23, 2019. SpaceX via Twitter SpaceX added sun visors to its Starlink internet satellites to prevent moving lights from marring views of the night sky. The result: the visors may have darkened the satellites to 31% of their former brightness, according to a new study. That makes them mostly invisible to the naked eye, but it probably doesn't ch...
