    Radio Waves Leaking from Large Satellite Constellations Jeopardize Astronomical Exploration
    The LOFAR radio telescope has shown that satellites can unintentionally emit radio waves that interfere with the telescope. If not addressed, their radio emission could close valuable windows into the Universe. This research emphasises the importance of collaboration between astronomy and industry to overcome these issues and establish regulation to control emissions.

    Observations confirm unintended electromagnetic radiation emitting from large satellite constellations
    Members of the Opticon RadioNet Pilot (ORP) used the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) telescope to observe Starlink satellites. They detected "unintended electromagnetic radiation" from onboard electronics, which could negatively impact astronomical research. They encourage satellite operators and regulators to consider this impact on radio astronomy in spacecraft development and regulatory processes.
