Hacktivists Plan Satellite To Bypass Censorship

  • Didn't China just test the "solution" to this "problem" sometime in the past year, and wasn't everyone annoyed about the resulting space junk it caused?

    A satellite whose purpose is to annoy the powerful, and some of those powerful are sufficiently capable to shoot it down. Furthermore, that satellite has no umbrella of national protection - nobody is going to consider the shootdown to be an act of war.

    I applaud their purpose, but unfortunately I see it as a target, and future hazardous space junk.
