SpaceX’s Starlink mega constellation will not cause any problems for astronomy, the company’s CEO and founder Elon Musk said today, Monday, March 9, despite some astronomers already reporting issues caused by the rapidly growing constellation.

Speaking at the 2020 Satellite Conference in Washington DC, Musk said he thought there was “zero” chance that Starlink would have any impact on astronomy, and SpaceX was taking steps to address some of the concerns from the astronomy community.

“I am confident that we will not cause any effect whatsoever in astronomical discoveries,” Musk said. “Zero. That’s my prediction. We’ll take corrective action if it’s above zero.”
