Only good memories of EPP, Jon!

What are other human vulnerabilities to these systems (e.g., hacking, jamming, physical attacks) and what policies/enforcement abilities are needed? What about other natural vulnerabilities (e.g., solar flares)?
Mike Fisher

At full constellation, what's the % of ownership by country?
Bill Wescott
01:33:38
What are the business insights given the bankruptcy of Iridium, massive losses from DirecTV? How will OneWeb and StarLink compete with Kuiper/Amazon, given Amazon's ability to monetize data services beyond direct fee for data service?

Thanks guys!

Since it is the same bands as GEO, it is susceptible to very thick clouds (thunderstorms), no?

Thanks to everyone!
