Meteor showers on demand in Japan

Astro Live Experiences (ALE), the world’s first aerospace entertainment firm, is launching a satellite to an altitude of 220 miles in the summer of 2019, which will release a meteor shower on command.

Brainchild of University of Tokyo astronomer Lena Okajima, the spacecraft will circle the globe and kick out 15-20 meteor particles. This invention was originally conceived as an opening act for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

However, “on-demand meteor showers” are a threat to the pre-existing satellites, and a crash into any of them would only add to our orbital debris.

Has the era of space entertainment begun?
