An op-ed in The New York Times is reporting earth-observing satellite counts are declining rapidly and everyday stuff like the accuracy of weather forecasting is about to be affected.
The new report found that the number of actual and planned satellite missions could decline from 23 this year to only 6 in 2020, reducing the number of Earth-observing instruments in space from 90 now to about 20 in 2020.
