Capella Space Satellites Surveillance Application Examined

By Zach Segal, Published Dec 29, 2020, 08:58am EST (Info+)

While numerous publications reported Capella Space satellites can see through walls, the company flatly denies this.

Interestingly they don't mention two very obvious consumers for their products: human rights investigators and independent (i.e. non-state sponsored) intelligence operations. I can see where this would be very useful (depending on cost) for independently monitoring places like Xinjiang and the DPRK or doing independent battel damage assessments in regional hot-spots like the Gaza Strip or Nagorno-Karabakh.

Those are both interesting potential use-cases. Some states without robust satellite networks may even be interested in Capella Space for intelligence or other use-cases.

The more satellites we put above us, the more damage will be made; it will be like microwaving the earth: NCBI - WWW Error Blocked Diagnostic

I think one of your buddies, Anthony Quinn Warner, may have just had a problem down in Nashville, Tennessee. You should try to call him to make sure he is OK.....

I think you do not know the human complexity, we are made of atoms and even people from other industries are studying the impact of how frequencies can impact the human body; just take your time to read press the NIH link I provided. This is science in the making, and if you want more info I will give it to you.

Anything more recent than a 28-year-old study that basically says "don't worry about it"? Actually never mind, the last thing I need is to go down the rabbit hole with you.

You do not belong to the rabbit hole, you belong to the group of people that do not understand technology in its fullness; we are not just talking about OT and IT systems; we are talking about beyond that.

I understand some of the concerns regarding ever increased intensity of electromagnetic radiation we are constantly bathed in. However, a quick back-of-the-envelope scribble suggests that space sources should be among our least concerns. Electromagnetic radiation intensity is directly proportional to the power radiated by the source, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the source.

Low Earth orbit is about 600 miles away at closest approach, while your cell phone tower (just to pick one example) is 50 miles away at the very farthest. Also, the radar is said to illuminate each area for 60 seconds out of every hour, while cell phone energy is continuous. So, in comparison, that satellite would have to be more than 8,000 times more powerful than your local cell phone tower to have the same effect. But, power is hard to come by in space, while cell phone towers are connected to the power grid.

If human exposure to electromagnetic radiation is a serious health issue, it seems likely that your wifi and your cell phone would pose a far greater intensity, hence risk, than any plausible space radar would.
