Trapping ourselves on Earth?
Ever see that cartoon where a person gradually and veery calmly paints himself into a corner only to suddenly realized that he is trapped? The comical thing about it is that common sense would be expected to prevent such a scenario. After all, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that-does it? Yet, in the realm of space exploration, it seems that common sense might not prevail and we will find ourselves in a similar or identical situation. How?
Well, easy. You see, by mindlessly putting so many saelites into orbit reaching outer space becomes either extremely unnecessarily hazardous to almost impossible due to the accidental collision risks. Seems far fetched-doesn't it? Well, not if you are familiar with the plans to launch thousands of satellites into orbit in order to make the Internet far more efficient.
The sattelites also block an astronomer's view and limits what can be sieen in all those different directions. That will severely slow our understanding of the cosmos. But there is also a far greater inconvenience. The inconvenience of not being abe to detect an incoming near-earth ssteroid or a distant comet coming our way in time to deflect it properly or at all.

Radrook Admin: Yes, sooner or later this entire website will disappear with everything posted on it for lack of finding someone to take over when I croak. But it won't be because you folks are refusing to respond. That I can guarantee.

Radrook Admin: That's one reason why I stopped providing long insights into the chess games I play. It's like speaking to the wall.

Radrook Admin: Funny how I can have approx. 400 people at one point browsing, and not one of them wants to give feedback nor participate in any way manner or form. Not even a simple click with a like.

Radrook Admin: Funny how these discussion forums were all the rage once until Twitter and YouTube and other such discussion venues came along.

Radrook Admin: I wish visitors would say something instead of just reading and leaving in silence. Or at the least, at least have the courtesy to rate the material.

Radrook Admin: Thinking that doctors are beyond criticism no matter what is a cultural trait I do not share.

Radrook Admin: Reporting physician malpractice might save someone else from getting murdered.

Radrook Admin: Funny how nobody believes you when you describe physician malpractice until it happens to them-isn't it.
