Elon Musk's Starlink satellite can prevent ozone from recovering, how come?

Liputan6.com, Jakarta – Elon Musk's Starlink, which is currently being widely discussed in Indonesia, is suspected to be able to prevent the earth's atmosphere from recovering itself. How come?

Quote Futurism, Tuesday (18/6/2024), in the latest study, researchers from the University of Southern California predicted the dangerous effects of satellites that inject dangerous pollutants such as aluminum oxide into the upper atmosphere, when these satellites burn up on re-entry to Earth.

Most researchers focus on pollutants released when rockets are launched. However, apparently there are implications of thousands of satellites that are no longer functioning, aka retiring from their duties and burning up in the atmosphere.

This is increasingly relevant given the damage that may occur, especially since SpaceX has launched nearly 6,000 Starlink satellites to date. In fact, Elon Musk's company also plans to add tens of thousands or more of their internet satellites in low-Earth orbit, aka less than 5,000 km above Earth.

Co-author and astronomy researcher at the University of Southern California Joseph Wang said in a statement, “It's only in the last few years that people have started to think this (Starlink satellites) might be a problem. We are one of the first teams to look at what the implications of these facts are .”
