    In the modern world, science and technology are fast-growing things, and as we can see a lot of new space technologies are about to be produced or invented. Which one do you expect the most and which one do you think might be the most useful for humans or for space exploration?

    Impossible to tell for me as things change so rapid and in so many directions.

    For sure Musk will make a lot of money though . :D

    In some cases you are right) But he and his company may invent something really staggering. I am not sure about his crewed mission to Mars, wether he will be able to make it`s possible some day ( personally I have doubts ) but he will earn much money on this project I guess)

    So what is your expectation for most useful for humans?

    I think what will make a major difference, which funnily enough Musk also happens to be working on, is the ability to augment our bodies Cyberpunk 2077 style, and allow telepathic thoughts from one human to the next. That will be just as important as quantum computers. Mark my words.

    Actually I like the idea how satellite and microsatellite technology are developing. Especially, I like microsatellites and how useful they are. They can be used for different purposes like tracking rare species of animals and observing mountains and glaciers from space. Unfortunately, microsatellites don`t have rather long term of usage but their launch is much cheaper and I guess they will be enough developed soon

    Yes, it is all crazy, I mean the speed with all technology develops and what can be done.
    I think it is kind of exponential growth.
    We will see soon. :)

    I like some kinds of microsatellites that can track rare species of animals from space. By doing that scientists are fighting against poaching and prevent those animals from being killed.

    That is quite a humanitarian task, I like it a lot!

    I like the idea of that project too. They actually take care about the stuff we all should worry about. Instead of colonizing other planets where humans just can`t live because of the harsh environment, scientists shoul make projects like that.

    Yes and no, depends what you consider a priority.
    I love animals and I would love to see them all free, not hungry and enjoying life.
    On the other hand we see where the humanity is going and that worries me a bit so the priority might change depending on how things develop.

    Yes, but thequestion is not only in animals. Those microsatellites also observe environmental chnges like melting glacies, deforestation of particular regions and observe sea level to help scientists in some global warming issues.

    Yes, I am glad that they have multi purpose use.

    I asked before here but can not remember the answer.
    How many of the satellites are there out there?
    Must be many by now.

    Yeah, I think that there are many. And I wanna mention the largest disadvantage of these microsatellites. They don`t have large term of usage and most of them stay in the orbit of Earth, increasing the number of space junk we have in the orbit of Earth. But I guess that in some time scientists will improve these microsatellites and they will have a longer term of usage

    Or figure out how to safely burn them during reentry when they are done.

    Unlike traditional satellites, Starlinks will have limited lifespans of about five years, Shotwell explained. SpaceX will "refresh the technology" of the Starlink network by rapidly replacing the satellites, which are designed to intentionally burn up in the Earth's atmosphere.

    Actually, there is another solution. I found the article about the ``cleaning`` mission.The Clearspace-1 satellite, or ‘The Claw’, represents the first step towards a clean space environment by being the first space debris removal dedicated mission. This special ``cleaning`` mission is scheduled for launch in 2025

    Yeah, I`ve read about that. And I like the way how Space X takes carre about the point of space junk and how to avoid it. They found a great solution with limitation of the lifespam ( which is pretty long )

    Dummy question, it is just because I did not have enough time to read on that.

    These satellites that Space X is launching now, many, many of them. What will they actually do?
