From TED Ed.
Explore what would happen if all of humanity’s satellites disappeared and the real-life scenarios that could lead to such a catastrophe.
What would happen if one day all of humanity’s artificial satellites suddenly disappeared? Within hours, most of the planet’s traffic would grind to a halt, the world economy would shut down, and most countries would declare a state of emergency. Even in the best-case scenario, our civilization would be set back by decades. So, what are the odds of this actually happening? Moriba Jah investigates.
