    Interesting read. Pity  that Space X did not think before they went  charging ahead  and  had the  fore site to consult  with others that operate in  the Space/ Astronomy  field. It would not only have been appropriate but good manners as well.  We can only wait and see  what  transpires  and hope  for  the best but fear the  worst.
