Challenges in astronomy in the light of satellite constellations

 Jure Japelj

 Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy, University of Amsterdam

Private companies will set up a network of new satellites in the low Earth orbit in the next few years. The sudden considerable increase in the number of satellites poses a multifaceted problem. Astronomers are especially alarmed about the negative impact the satellites could have on the astronomical research. I will present the latest developments and discuss whether these swarms of satellites will be a real problem or just a nuisance.
