S03E01 Jessica Heim – Cultural Astronomer Marnie Ogg welcomes her guest, Jessica Heim, to Dark Sky Conversations to discuss the impacts of light at night caused by satellite mega constellations, including those launched by Elon Musk and other organizations. Heim, who is a resident of Missouri and a student at the University of Southern Queensland, shares her research on the potential risks of increased space junk and clutter caused by these tens of thousands of satellites. Marnie mentions that Heim's paper, written in collaboration with John Barrentyne, has received a great deal of attention in the Australian media and abroad.
