What are Those Strange Moving Lights in the Night Sky?

Elon Musk’s ‘Starlink’ Satellites Explained

If you’ve looked up at the night sky recently, you might have been surprised to see a train of bright lights moving across from one side to the other. What’s going on?

The lights appear in groups of up to 60 in a long line. There have been numerous reports from places like the U.S. and U.K. of people seeing them, with explanations ranging from UFOs to an alien invasion. Of course.

But fear not. These lights are actually satellites, launched into space by the U.S. company SpaceX, run by South African entrepreneur Elon Musk. And they’re a bit controversial.

Denmark is Building an Artificial Island
to House the World’s First Clean Energy Hub

Some 50 miles from the coast and surrounded by hundreds of wind turbines, the floating area will provide energy to 3 million homes and produce alternate fuels.

Two months ago, Denmark said that it would stop all new oil and gas exploration in the North Sea and completely phase out fossil fuel production by 2050. The country is currently the largest oil producer in the European Union. Now it’s planning the next step in its transition: an artificial island that will serve as a clean energy hub and eventually make zero-carbon fuel using wind power.

The artificial island, which will be roughly the size of 20 football fields, will be surrounded by 200 to 600 massive wind turbines—each potentially taller than Seattle’s Space Needle. Because the hub will be around 50 miles off the Danish coast, the turbines can be larger than ones on land, and they can also access higher wind speeds. In its first phase, the hub will send electricity to 3 million households; eventually the size will more than triple.

As massive batteries are added the hub will be able to store energy and send it on demand. While offshore wind power already exists, this island will be the world’s first clean energy hub, gathering and distributing power from multiple wind farms simultaneously. The hub will also be able to produce fuel.
