Starlink is an important project of SpaceX and Elon Musk to provide high-speed satellite Internet to mankind. However, it is not clear how we humans will benefit, but for now, this project is definitely being extremely popular with cat “boss”. The reason is because Starlink’s tuner pans are becoming the ideal place for cats to rest and warm up in the cold winter.
Specifically, on a Twitter post on the first day of the new year, a user named Aaron Taylor captured an image of 5 cats crammed together on a set of Starlink satellite dishes. Meanwhile, although the outdoor temperature seems to be quite low and the snow is still covered on the ground, the heat emitted from the corrugated iron seems to be enough to warm the “boss” and make them continue to lie there. there.
It wouldn’t be surprising if Starlink’s tuner is capable of attracting cats as well as a few other small creatures. Some Reddit users even used thermal imaging to determine why they liked to congregate around the device so much. They said: “I examined my pan set with an infrared thermal camera and discovered that its entire construction, including the back, is radiating, very warm. So, if you mount the pan to the ground, there’s a good chance you’ll see some animals congregating above or below it.”
Meanwhile, some others expressed concern about the birds sitting on the rim of the pan that could “puff” indiscriminately and affect the performance of the device. However, to date, no such incident has been recorded.
In the past, there are many major websites like The Verge that have assessed the quality of Starlink quite low in the first testing phase. Now, with the above situation, perhaps they need to dig deeper to determine if the cats or other animals are the cause of this set of devices not working effectively or not.
In July and October last year, Starlink once made many people “soul” when forcing the Chinese space station to dodge its satellite twice to avoid unfortunate collisions. But that’s the story above Earth’s orbit. As for the ground below, when winter has not yet passed, perhaps they also have to give up before the carefree, innocent cat “boss”.
