Starlink is a project to provide high-speed satellite Internet of SpaceX and Elon Musk. It is not clear how effective this project will be for humans, but currently the “boss” of cats and other small animals are extremely fond of the Starlink satellite dish because this is the ideal place to help them warm through the season. freezing cold.
Recently, a user named Aaron Taylor posted a photo on Twitter showing 5 cats huddled together on a set of Starlink satellite dishes in cold, snow-covered weather.
It seems that the cats have discovered that the heat from the corrugated iron will help them stay warm on cold winter days, so they lie there. Taylor said that the cats lying on the pan caused their fur to fall out and stick to the pan. This more or less affects the quality of the transmission, causing interruptions when watching movies but not losing the signal completely.
Not only cats but also birds like to perch on Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite dish. This makes many people worry about the birds that may “pump” indiscriminately on the satellite dish and may affect the performance of the device. Fortunately, so far there have been no reported cases of such incidents.
Some people have used thermal imaging to determine why certain small animals like to congregate around the device so much. As a result, the entire structure of the satellite dish, including the back, radiates heat, which is very warm.
With the above situation, perhaps some users will have to check their satellite dish to see if the cause is due to cats or other animals if the device does not work effectively.
