A “shooting star” is a neat thing to see when out star-gazing. It should not be a form of entertainment, particularly when it necessitates launching a satellite into space.

“We want to provide meteor showers on demand,” Josh Rodenbaugh, a member of ALE’s satellite operations team, told BuzzFeed News.

This is stupid, wasteful, and just awful all around.
