In a historic move, the FCC has imposed a $150,000 fine on DISH for not relocating a retired satellite from its original orbit, marking the first time the U.S. government has taken action against a company regarding space debris. This demonstrates the FCC’s commitment to enforcing vital space debris rules and encouraging industry compliance. The settlement includes an admission of liability from DISH, as well as a compliance plan. This proactive stance by the FCC is expected to prompt the industry to prioritize responsible satellite management, ultimately safeguarding our crowded space environment.
